About Artemis ILS NYC 2019

February 1st 2019, 08:00 – 19:30 (including networking drinks reception)

Artemis returns to New York for our third annual insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference in the city, building on the success of 2017 and 2018 events.

We return in 2019 with the goal of inspiring discussion about the future of ILS once again. But this time looking at where the ILS market finds its next phase of growth.

We will look at the way ILS and collateralized reinsurance underwriting continues to grow and develop apace, asking what we can see today that shows us where this rapid market development may be going.

The ILS market's response to the largest losses it has ever experienced showed maturity. But there are also distinct signs of the ILS business model adapting to market conditions to create a new status-quo, which we intend to explore at this event.

With our events, we try to create the kind of conference that we would want to attend ourselves, mixing great speakers, insightful content, a forward-thinking outlook and quality networking. Register here

The venue for Artemis ILS NYC 2019 is a purpose-built event space named Convene, on West 46th Street. Venue details.

Artemis ILS NYC 2019 will look to inspire, inform, connect the dots, spark ideas, facilitate networking and offer experienced executives a chance to reflect on what has gone well and what challenges or opportunities lie ahead in mobilizing the capital markets to invest in insurance risk.
