Elementum Advisors is an independent, SEC-registered alternative investment manager specializing in collateralized natural event reinsurance investments ("Risk-Linked Investments" or "RLI").
The firm is located in Chicago and focuses on natural event exposed investment - from liquid catastrophe bonds to high-alpha collateralized reinsurance investments.
Elementum was launched in December 2009 by John DeCaro, Tony Rettino, and Mike France. The principals have worked together in the Risk-Linked Investment arena since 1995. Prior to founding Elementum, they worked together in the Reinsurance and Risk-Linked Investments group at Stark Investments, a leading multi-strategy hedge fund in Milwaukee. Elementum’s team includes all of the former members of the group at Stark, as well as a former member of Stark’s Business Development team.

Dr. Krause commented, "The students are always fascinated by the material presented by Elementum Advisors. It is clear that Chris and his colleagues are some of the top catastrophic bond specialists in the business today.
While these are complicated instruments, Chris did an excellent job explaining them and giving real examples. We are pleased that he was able to join us again – the seventh year that Elementum Advisors has visited Marquette’s campus."
