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 2020 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.

This is a thought-leadership event, designed to attract those interested in concepts related to ILS, the convergence of reinsurance with capital markets, risk transfer, the future of this growing market and people who recognize the unique opportunity to network with ILS stalwarts and thought-leaders.

Meet senior executives from insurance or reinsurance companies, catastrophe bond and ILS fund managers, pension investors, asset managers, hedge funds, service providers, technology start-ups, investment bankers and more.
