Artemis ILS NYC 2021

Sadly, Artemis could not return to New York for its fifth annual insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference in the city. Instead, we took ILS NYC online and virtual for 2021, delivering discussions with a range of ILS market speakers our audience know and love.

More than 370 people attended ILS NYC 2020, our fourth annual ILS conference in New York. Attendees were treated to insightful discussions on the state of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market from experts in their fields.

For 2021, we brought you New York style discussions with insurance-linked securities (ILS) industry experts and some of our regular speakers, delivering the quality of content you've learned to expect from us at Artemis.

Watch live or on-demand.

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. While virtual events clearly aren't the same and we look forward to seeing you all in person as soon as we can, we'll do our best to bring you something a little different.
