The article discusses issues surrounding insurance companies' search for call protection. One loan trader pointed out that investors, such as pension funds, avert the loan market due to duration risks and that the addition of a call protection would help the loan market be attractive to large companies. However, he pointed out that this would contradict with the asset class' callability. An August 2010 report by Chris Taggert of CreditSights, mentioned the cash yield management challenges presented by loan duration risk.
