Original Risk: A Society for Change Agents

Full agenda announced for ILS Asia 2017, tickets still on sale


Today we’re delighted to announce the full agenda for our upcoming ILS Asia 2017 conference, which is being held at the Marina Bay Sands complex in Singapore, on the 13th July. There are a few tickets still remaining, so please register to attend today.

With Artemis ILS Asia 2017, we return to Singapore for a second installment of our annual insurance-linked securities (ILS) meeting in Asia, with the goal of furthering education on ILS as risk transfer and as asset class, while also facilitating introductions and building on connections between the region and mature-market based ILS executives.

To that end, the conference is focused on continuing the introduction of ILS to the region, with talks recapping recent activity in the ILS market, particularly where there is an Asian focus, and other educational sessions that will take the audience through some of the finer points related to understanding and accessing the ILS market.

For a full list of our speakers and to register visit the ILS Asia 2017 event website here.
