About Artemis ILS Asia 2016

13 July 2016, 08:00 – 19:00 (including networking drinks reception)

The insurance-linked securities (ILS) market represents a growing asset class of investors accessing the returns of insurance and reinsurance risk, through instruments such as catastrophe bonds, collateralised reinsurance, ILS funds and sidecars.

As the ILS asset class grows it looks to expand its reach, both in terms of risks underwritten and invested in in terms of increasing the investor base. Asia is a natural expansion, as ILS players and markets look to access new cedents and capital sources.

We're holding our conference in Singapore, as a central transport hub in Asia with an active reinsurance market and capital market investor community. Register here
