We’re delighted to announce that the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the central bank and financial regulator, is joining us and a representative is making a keynote speech at our upcoming ILS Asia 2019 conference in Singapore this July.
With Singapore gaining traction as a home for insurance-linked securities (ILS) thanks to three catastrophe bond transactions having been completed there so far this year, it’s a particularly exciting time to hear from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
Joining us for the ILS Asia 2019 conference on July 11th and presenting an opening keynote speech in the morning will be Gillian Tan, Executive Director, Financial Markets Development Department, Monetary Authority of Singapore.
Ms Tan’s department aims to promote a vibrant financial market in Singapore, with a focus on developing the capital market, asset management and insurance sectors, and to foster a sound and innovative technology, payments and exchange infrastructure.
Among capital market development initiatives, insurance-linked securities (ILS) is an important area of focus for the Monetary Authority of Singapore, having put significant effort into the development of regulations, as well as in working with ILS market service providers, ceding companies and investors.
These efforts have paid off in the form of now three catastrophe bond transactions that have been domiciled in and issued in Singapore using its specific ILS targeted special purpose reinsurance vehicle (SPRV) legislation.
So please join us in Singapore on July 11th to hear the latest from Ms. Tan on the Monetary Authority of Singapore’s work related to the ILS sector.
The ILS Asia 2019 conference is taking place in Singapore on July 11th, 2019.
More details on the still developing agenda can now be found on the conference website.
Our conference brings together insurance-linked securities (ILS) industry experts together with the Asian region insurance, reinsurance and investment community to discuss market trends.
With our events, we try to create the kind of conference that we would want to attend ourselves, mixing great speakers, insightful content, a forward-thinking outlook and quality networking.
The conference will be held at Singapore’s Suntec Convention Centre in Suntec City, a purpose-built and state-of-the-art events space centrally located in the city.
Please join us at this event to stay up to date with the ILS market and also to hear more about the recent catastrophe bond issuance activity in Singapore under the recently enacted ILS regulatory regime.
