ils-nyc-2020-promoWe’re holding our fourth annual insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference held in New York City on February 7th 2020 in central midtown Manhattan.

We announced the theme for the conference just last week, with “Building Back Stronger” reflecting the fact that after consecutive loss years, the ILS sector’s focus shifts to how to building an increasingly robust, institutional quality ILS asset class.

We’re delighted to add two more speakers with unique views on the need for risk transfer as a driver of resilience, as well as the use of capital to offset natural disaster and climate related risk exposures.

Joining us on the day for our ILS NYC 2020 – “Building Back Stronger” conference will be:

  • Michael Bennett – Head of Derivatives & Structured Finance, World Bank Treasury.
  • Elizabeth Yee – Managing Director, Climate & Resilience, The Rockefeller Foundation.
