For UK life insurers seeking capital-efficient assets that comply with specific national rules, a recent £100 million ($126.7 million) securitisation has added to the range of choice.

The securitisation, completed earlier this quarter, was purchased by an unnamed UK life insurer and covers two central London hotels and several ancillary properties.
