Artemis ILS NYC 2017 – post-conference report


Welcome to the Artemis ILS NYC 2017 post conference report. Our New York event, for a discerning audience of insurance-linked securities (ILS), reinsurance and capital markets experts, saw participants embrace our theme of “Future Thinking.”

Artemis ILS NYC 2017Over 215 people attended our inaugural ILS NYC conference with attendees came from across the ILS and reinsurance market spectrum, as well as New York investors, asset managers, bankers and funds, and a number of InsurTech start-ups, venture investors and other categories.

The overwhelming finding of the day was that ILS and the capital market’s are ready to do more to support global risk transfer, re/insurance and resilience, with technology set to drive further penetration of efficient capital into risk markets.

The event was held in New York at purpose built event space, Convene, on West 46th Street, and was attended by 215 delegates, with the waiting list for spaces nearing 90 by day of the conference.

Attendees were treated to insightful and thought provoking discussions surrounding the evolution of ILS, its expansion into both existing and emerging peril regions and what the future of the market looks like.

The need for, and ability of ILS capacity and structures to help narrow the growing international protection gap was one of the day’s burning issues, and speakers were keen to explore how ILS can play a part and help to improve global resilience.

In today’s marketplace technology is viewed as a disruptive yet innovative force, and the Insurtech panel explored the rise of technology, the change it could facilitate and how this might translate into the expansion of ILS into new risks and regions.

Speakers debated the niches within the ILS space and where the next wave of investment might focus, with areas like casualty, run-off, and longevity, to name a few, being highlighted.

To end the day the four panel moderators took to the stage, and attendees were treated to an in-depth discussion covering all topics explored throughout the event, from leading ILS market experts and executives.

Artemis ILS New York will be back in February 2018. We hope to see you there!
