Artemis Live: Interview with Tom Johansmeyer, Head of PCS


We’ve launched a new audio and video feature that will see us talking with leaders of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) and reinsurance industry and broadcasting them via our YouTube channel.

tom-johansmeyer-interview-pcs-artemisLike everyone else, the shift to remote working that comes with the global coronavirus lock-down has made us think differently about ways of working.

So we’re leveraging some of the technology tools we use every day, to bring directly to you some of the interesting discussions we typically have in private with market practitioners, in audio and video formats.

First in this Artemis Live series of interviews is our good friend and long-time supporter Tom Johansmeyer, Head of PCS (part of the Verisk group of companies).

Johansmeyer is well-known to many of our readership and always has insightful views on pertinent industry topics to share.

Given the ongoing global coronavirus pandemic and its potential to impact the insurance, reinsurance and ILS market, this first interview is particularly focused on issues related to pandemic risk.

Speaking with Johansmeyer, we cover a wide-range of topics related to silent pandemic risks, hedging and reinsurance ramifications of the pandemic, parametric triggers for pandemic risks, industry loss warranties (ILW’s), the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market, and much more.

The video is embedded below, but can also be viewed in full over on our YouTube channel.

We’re going 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.

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.
