About Artemis ILS Asia 2020

Held in association with PCS (a Verisk business)

July 2020 - Online & virtual mix of conference keynotes and panel sessions

Watch every session on-demand now.

Unfortunately we cannot return to Singapore this year to hold ILS Asia 2020 due to the global coronavirus pandemic. After four successful years in Singapore, for 2020 ILS Asia is going online and virtual for our fifth annual insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference.

We will still bring together international ILS and reinsurance market speakers to discuss the state of the ILS market and the benefits of insurance-linked securities capital as efficient risk transfer and capacity, but this year our gathering will be online and virtual.

For 2020 we want to drive home the advances made in ILS market structures and procedures, highlighting the benefits of ILS market risk transfer, efficient capital and reasons investors appreciate the asset class. All in keynotes and discussions across a number of days to make best use of your time.

This year, the event will maintain its Asia focus to a degree, but the subject matter will be a little broader and less region specific given the global reach of an online conference.

See our agenda & register to watch.

We are going virtual in 2020 to build on the success of our well attended 2016, 2017 , 2018 and 2019 ILS conferences for the Asia and surroundings region.

180 people attended our last event in Singapore to discuss ILS activity in Asia and to network with the assembled international audience of experts.

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.
