We’re delighted to announce further additions to the agenda for our next conference, as the World Bank and the International Federation of the Red Cross join the speaking roster of our February 1st 2019 insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference in New York, Artemis ILS NYC 2019.

Artemis ILS NYC 2019We’re delighted to announce these highly experienced and insightful experts in their fields of relevance to the insurance, reinsurance and insurance-linked securities space will be joining us at our upcoming third conference in New York.

Attendees will hear thought-provoking discussions on the future of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market and the use of the capital markets in re/insurance, with the theme for 2019 on  “Unlocking the next phase of ILS growth.”

Early bird tickets are still on sale, but these are now limited and prices will soon rise. So please secure your space at the conference soon to avoid disappointment, as the last two year’s we have sold out of tickets in advance of the day.

We’re pleased to announce that Michael Bennett, Head of Derivatives & Structured Finance at the World Bank Treasury and Adam Bornstein, Global Financial Innovation Specialist at the International Federation of the Red Cross, are both joining us on the day of the conference.

These two speakers bring unique perspectives on the use of insurance-linked securities (ILS) and alternative reinsurance capital as tools to de-risk sovereign entity balance-sheets and mobilise capital for humanitarian needs. As a result, they can provide deep insights into how capital market financing can play a growing role in global risk transfer efforts.

About Artemis ILS NYC 2019:

We’re returning to New York to discuss the future of ILS once again, with the goal of inspiring discussion about opportunities but this time looking at where the ILS market finds its next phase of growth.

We will look at the way ILS and collateralized reinsurance underwriting continues to grow, asking what we can see today that shows us where this rapid market development may be going.

The ILS market’s response to the largest losses it has ever experienced showed maturity. But there are also distinct signs of the ILS business model adapting to market conditions to create a new status-quo, which we intend to explore at this event.

Attend to hear from industry thought-leaders and guest speakers, on topics covering the ILS market in the present, as well as what will drive its future development and expansion.

We’re trying to create the kind of conference that we would want to attend ourselves, mixing insightful content, great speakers, a forward-thinking outlook with quality networking.

Artemis ILS NYC 2019 will look to inspire, inform, connect the dots, spark ideas, facilitate networking and offer experienced executives a chance to reflect on what has gone well and what challenges or opportunities lie ahead in mobilizing the capital markets to invest in insurance risk.

The venue for Artemis ILS NYC 2019 is a purpose-built event space named Convene, on West 46th Street in Manhattan.
