At AsianInvestor's recent Insurance Investment Forum in Hong Kong we sat down to interview Sophia Cheng, chief investment officer at Cathay Financial Holdings.

Cheng had earlier participated in a panel discussion on the challenges liability-driven investors face as they hunt for yield in the low-rate environment while trying not to compromise on risk, as reported.

In our video interview Cheng discusses a range of topics that we have broken up into three short clips. Here she talks about Cathay Financial's asset allocation plans, including its intention to increase overseas investment due to low interest rates and limited investment opportunities domestically.
