Michael Millette, Hudson Structured Capital ManagementAll 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.

Millette discussed insurance-linked securities (ILS) and reinsurance investing, giving his view on the prospects for the ILS asset class beyond the Covid-19 pandemic and what that may bring for investors.

“Tragedy and history. This is as near to what any of us have seen in our lifetimes, an event affecting everybody all around the world, so it’s tragic and likewise it’s historic,” Millette said.

On the Lloyd’s of London estimate for a $107 billion non-life industry loss, he commented, “I expect that’s in the right neighbourhood. We have been talking and thinking about losses on that scale.

“It’s interesting though, this is not just a gigantic catastrophe loss, although it is a gigantic global catastrophe. This is a massive horizontal loss for the industry.”

He went on to explain what this could all mean for the ILS fund and reinsurance linked investment market.

Describing some of the immediate opportunities that could arise in specific lines of business, as well as in investing in insurtech start-ups, saying ” this a digital forcing event around the world” and calling it “the insurtech moment.”
