Artemis ILS NYC 2018

Artemis' second conference in New York City was very well attended, selling out a month in advance of the event. 295 people attended the ILS NYC 2018 conference on the day and we had a waiting list of nearly 75 people who we could not fit in (don't worry, we're expanding the venue again for 2019).

Speakers discussed the fact that the impressive reaction of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market to 2017 catastrophe events shouldn’t be a surprise and said the marketplace has an opportunity to do even more in the future.

The day featured speakers from all over the globe, including executives from dedicated ILS funds, leaders of capital markets units of global insurance and reinsurance firms, executives from the broker community, and also leading figures at Lloyd’s of London, Florida Citizens, the World Bank, and Microsoft.

This year’s event focused on Building the Future of ILS, and after the catastrophe losses of 2017 attendees heard concrete examples of how the space responded and what this might mean for the future of the reinsurance market cycle, and the broader risk transfer environment.
