Welcome to the Artemis ILS Asia 2016 post-conference report, which offers an insight into some of the discussions that took place on stage as well as between speakers and attendees during the first Artemis event in the region.
The event took place in Singapore’s iconic Raffles Hotel in July 2016, with over 170 delegates gathering to hear leading ILS and reinsurance market participants from around the world discuss the Asian ILS market’s potential.
The emerging Asian re/insurance and ILS market is widely regarded across the sector as a region with high growth potential, and with Singapore positioned as a hub for reinsurance business across the continent, we felt it was the perfect location for market participants to come together.
The day was a resounding success, and attendees were treated to insightful and thought-provoking discussions surrounding the potential for ILS capacity, and its features, to play an increasingly important role in Asia.
The first catastrophe bonds exposed to Asian risks emerged in 1997 and, owing to the region’s consistent involvement in the ILS industry we wanted to highlight the important role Asia has played in the marketplace so far, and also underline some of the opportunities for ILS to expand its Asian footprint.
The global risk landscape continues to evolve, and as advanced technology supports the development of greater modelling capabilities in some of the most vulnerable corners of the world, the use of ILS and capital market capacity within Asian insurance and reinsurance is poised to expand.
Event attendees enjoyed both individual speaker and panel sessions throughout the day, which included risk modellers, brokers, investors, sponsors, and other industry service providers, with a focus on both the challenges and opportunities for ILS in Asia.
Artemis ILS Asia will be back in Singapore in July 2017. We hope to see you there!
Thank you to our kind sponsors of this event, without whom the day would not have been possible.
