Each Wednesday morning we send out a regular weekly e-mail newsletter, featuring a rundown of the last seven days catastrophe bond, insurance-linked securities (ILS), reinsurance capital and associated risk transfer news from Artemis.
We thought it worth repeating the rundown of the last seven days of Artemis news, analysis, interviews and features in a regular Wednesday morning post here as well. So if you only read one post on Artemis a week you can still keep up with all the news from the catastrophe bond, insurance-linked securities, alternative reinsurance capital and related areas of reinsurance and risk transfer markets.
