Frank Majors of Nephila Capital, John Seo of Fermat Capital Management and Tom Johansmeyer of PCS have been revealed as the first confirmed speakers for our February 1st 2019 insurance-linked securities (ILS) conference in New York, Artemis ILS NYC 2019.

Artemis ILS NYC 2019We’re delighted to have these three experienced ILS and reinsurance sector leaders involved in our third conference in New York.

Attendees can look forward to hearing discussions on the future of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market, with the theme for 2019 being “Unlocking the next phase of ILS growth.”

We’ll be adding more speakers over the coming weeks and will announce them as we have details.

We’re delighted to have Frank Majors, Co-Founder of Nephila Capital join us in 2019, having participated in our first New York conference. He is always a source of inspiration for our attendees, given his experience in reinsurance and expertise in creating the largest dedicated ILS manager so far. This year, following the acquisition of Nephila by Markel, we expect attendees will be even more eager to hear his views.

John Seo, Co-Founder and Managing Principal of Fermat Capital Management, LLC, has become a regular speaking fixture at our New York conference and we look forward to him sharing his expertise and unique insights on the future of insurance-linked securities (ILS) once again.

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.
