ILS Asia 2023: Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to deliver keynote


We’re delighted to announce that the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), the central bank and financial regulatory authority, will join us at our upcoming ILS Asia 2023 conference on July 13th and deliver an opening keynote speech.

lim-cheng-khai-masSingapore has made impressive progress as a hub for insurance-linked securities (ILS) and catastrophe bond business over the last few years.

When the first Artemis ILS Asia conference was held back in 2016, the Singapore ILS regulatory regime and grant scheme did not exist, but today the country has a burgeoning ILS industry and is the domicile to numerous special purpose reinsurance vehicles established to issue ILS and cat bonds.

Artemis is delighted to be returning to Singapore for our fifth in-person insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference held in the country, ILS Asia 2023, taking place on July 13th.

With now less than two months to go, there are still some Early Bird tickets available, but we urge you to register soon to secure your place at the upcoming conference.

Joining us to deliver an opening keynote speech on the day will be Mr. Lim Cheng Khai, Executive Director, Financial Markets Development Department, from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).

His department at MAS aims to promote a vibrant financial market in Singapore, focused on developing the capital market, asset management and insurance sectors, as well as infrastructure and trade finance capabilities.

Mr. Lim Cheng Khai works closely with industry partners to achieve these goals, partnering with key financial institutions and industry associations to support the growth of Singapore’s financial markets and strengthen the proposition of Singapore as a gateway to serve Asia’s capital raising and financing needs.

We look forward to hearing Mr. Lim Cheng Khai’s opening keynote at our ILS Asia 2023 conference.

Please register today to join us and hear from numerous expert ILS focused speakers, as well as regional reinsurance guests.

At ILS Asia 2023 we will continue to demystify the ILS market, furthering education on the ILS asset class and reconnecting with our attendees, while updating them on regional and global ILS market activity and hearing the thoughts of mature-market ILS executives on the potential for further growth in Asia and beyond.

With global reinsurance market pricing having hardened considerably and returns now reset much higher, the ILS market and catastrophe bonds are playing an important role as a diversifying risk capital source of protection, while investor interest is also expanding on the back of much higher yields.

At the ILS Asia 2023 conference, we’ll discuss these trends and more, including the opportunities for growth and expansion of the ILS market, such as to non-catastrophe lines of business.
