Artemis Live: Interview with David Flandro, Hyperion X


Our fourth Artemis Live video interview features an interesting and wide-ranging discussion with David Flandro, Managing Director, Hyperion X Analytics, a data and technology focused unit of the global Hyperion Insurance Group.

Interview with David Flandro, Hyperion XAll of our Artemis Live video interviews can be accessed directly from our YouTube Channel and we have more interesting discussions with leaders of the ILS and reinsurance industry to come over the next few weeks.

David Flandro of Hyperion X joined us for a discussion on the insurance and reinsurance market implications of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic.

He told us that, “There seems to be pretty healthy investment appetite for alternative capital products, even products that are non-cyclical rather than non-correlative.”

Flandro further explained that investors continue to look at reinsurance and ILS as a fairly small proportion of overall pension fund, sovereign wealth fund and other investor assets.

“I don’t think this has diminished appetite for ILS very much at all,” he said of the pandemic.

“We are getting new investors who are looking for non-correlative assets that are relatively high-yielding, in sectors where rates are going up… and that is what we’ve been seeing in the reinsurance market.”

The full video interview is embedded below, but can also be viewed in full, along with previous Artemis Live video interviews, over on our YouTube channel.

We will continue to bring you these interviews with leaders of the ILS and reinsurance industry on an ad-hoc basis, as and when our time and that of our contacts allow. All of our Artemis Live video interviews can be accessed directly from our YouTube Channel.

But we’d love to hear from you if you have an interesting viewpoint to bring to us and we’re also offering sponsorship opportunities for our broadcasts, one-off webinars and virtual events including roundtables, all with a focus on reinsurance, ILS and the efficiency of risk transfer. Please get in touch to discuss.
