Covered California – the state of California’s official healthcare marketplace – helps ensure individuals, families and small businesses can find low-cost health insurance. But paper-based processes previously made it harder for the organization to quickly and efficiently provide coverage to citizens who needed it. So Covered California implemented a digital agent enrollment process to streamline internal administration and offer customers a higher level of service.
Watch this webinar to hear the story of Covered California’s digital transformation, and how accelerating digital agreements and signatures can help your agency provide better citizen-facing services. Topics covered:
- Redesigning core government processes
- Achieving more by integrating digital systems
- Measuring impact and time savings
- Automating workflows to reduce errors and incorrect information
- Improving compliance and security with digital audit trails

There is increasing demand for alternative fixed income from institutional investors. Especially low interest rates and low yields from traditional investment categories have led investors to alternative fixed income as part of their search for yield. Some of the possible characteristics of this asset class are:
• Attractive Yields
Alternative fixed income strategies have attractive yields compared to traditional asset classes such as government bonds and corporate bonds.
• Effective Risk Diversifier
Add low or uncorrelated exposure to your investment portfolio e.g. by adding consumer exposure to sovereign and corporate exposure.
• Covered Structure
Losses on portfolios are historically low for certain alternatives due to covered structures (e.g. Asset-backed Securities) or government guarantees (e.g. Dutch mortgages with NHG guarantee and private placements with European guarantees).
Three possible ways to build exposure to alternative fixed income:
Dutch residential mortgages oﬀer an attractive spread over the swap rate, compared to traditional asset classes such as government bonds and corporate bonds. Yet they come with a significant underlying guarantee. Residential mortgages are also an attractive risk diversifier within multi-asset portfolios and their long duration ensures a strong fit within the asset-liability framework of pension plans and insurers.
