Artemis was launched on 12th May 1999. Its founders held a belief that the capital markets was the deepest, most liquid and efficient source of risk capital available to facilitate the transfer of disaster risks, and that capital market structures would be the most effective tools for the structuring and transfer of peak catastrophe risks.
Today, Artemis is the longest running news, analysis and data media service devoted to the alternative risk transfer, catastrophe bond & insurance linked security, non-traditional reinsurance, insurance linked investments and associated risk transfer markets.
Artemis also covers longevity risk transfer, weather risk management, weather index insurance, parametric insurance and reinsurance trends, as well as any other alternative risk financing and transfer methodologies within the reinsurance sector that our readers may be interested in. Artemis has a particular focus on sectors in risk and re/insurance where the efficiencies of the capital markets could provide benefits and disrupt incumbents.
As these markets have developed Artemis has always stuck to its original mission of covering the convergence of reinsurance and risk transfer with the capital markets. As this convergence continues to evolve so too will Artemis, to cover new markets which these trends of reinsurance capital, insurance linked investments and capital markets risk transfer touch on.
Artemis will also evolve to support the demands of its large community, supporting its need for a publishing platform, education, insight and analysis and providing access to the largest audience of its kind on any medium.
After over 15 years of service to the ILS and reinsurance community Artemis still strives to fulfill its original mission statement:
ARTEMIS is the online heart of the Alternative Risk Transfer and Weather Trading market. For too long this market has been mysterious, jargon filled and opaque; Artemis allows those with even a limited understanding of ART to learn, gain confidence and then directly contact the best people to help them. Artemis is moving ART out of its ivory towers and into the commercial mainstream.
Artemis is visited by tens of thousands of professionals with an interest in topics such as ART, catastrophe bonds, insurance-linked securities (ILS), reinsurance linked investments, catastrophe risk management, weather risk transfer, risk modelling, reinsurance trends and longevity risk transfer every month. This makes it a great place to advertise your services to these markets.
Artemis is used very widely because it is free to users everywhere. This is possible because of the support of advertisers and sponsors who recognise how Artemis will help the market grow and how their emphasised profile will help them to obtain an enlarged proportion of it. We thank our existing advertisers for their support.
If you would like to raise your profile in Artemis, sponsor a section or provide content for a dedicated area of the website have a look at our media pack for advertisers and sponsors.
Artemis is a trusted source of information and typically the first stop for anyone researching reinsurance and catastrophe risk as an asset class, evaluating catastrophe bonds as a risk transfer tool, or seeking insight into reinsurance convergence trends, as well as the other sectors we cover.
That means we are visited daily by the likes of pension fund managers, investment managers, advisors and other capital holders who are considering reinsurance as an asset class, as well as reinsurance protection buyers and sellers, investors, funds, banks, brokers, risk experts, service providers and other interested parties.
Artemis has on average 35,000 readers per month (as at December 2014) making it the largest audience of its kind on the internet or any other medium. With a 15 year pedigree you will not find a more focused and highly relevant audience anywhere.
In the last year alone we have had over 1.5 million page views of our content. This makes Artemis a great place to advertise to a global, reinsurance and risk transfer focused audience. Our audience is the largest and most focused on ILS, cat bonds & reinsurance anywhere on the internet or other mediums.
Best wishes and enjoy Artemis!
