Welcome to our Artemis SIFMA IRLS Executive Roundtable 2016, in which our participants explore the potential for ILS features, structures and capacity to play a greater role in the evolving risk landscape and increase market efficiency.
The ILS asset class has continued to expand its global reach and depth, becoming a more significant influence on insurance and reinsurance market trends, which, has seen alternative capital claim a larger slice of the overall reinsurance market pie in recent years.
With rates in the global reinsurance industry being under pressure for some time, efficiency of both capital and business models have been at the forefront of industry discussions. Prominent executives and representatives of the global ILS space came together with Artemis to discuss the potential for ILS capacity to have a more meaningful impact on emerging, and existing risks.
Advances in technology and other market trends continue to create a wealth of opportunities and issues for global financial markets, and participants were keen to discuss where ILS could play a role in vast global exposures, such as cyber and terror.
The changing risk landscape has driven a need for improved risk modelling capabilities for both underdeveloped regions and underserved risks around the globe, and Roundtable participants were eager to explore the benefits and limitations of models, with a focus on emerging peril regions.
Furthermore, Roundtable speakers explore the potential for the ILS community to play an increased role in the world of corporates, which, could be assisted should the sector expand outside its current scope and move beyond named natural perils.
The ILS sector has become an important and influential part of the global insurance and reinsurance market, and, as the global risk landscape continues to evolve and reshape the industry, the ILS community appears willing and able to add efficiency, innovation, and capacity where it’s needed most.
