Video from Artemis London 2022. Session 1: A celebration of cat bonds


Our Artemis London 2022 conference a month ago was themed as a celebration of the catastrophe bond and our opening session of the day featured a fantastic keynote speech about the cat bond market and a lightning run through 25 landmark cat bonds from the first 25 years of the sector.

Artemis London 2022 - Mike Millette keynote speech on catastrophe bondsThis video is of the first session from our Artemis London 2022 conference, held on September 6th, 2022 and our first insurance-linked securities (ILS) market conference ever held in the city.

More than 240 attendees enjoyed a wide-range of informative and thought-provoking sessions and networking opportunities at the conference.

Themed largely around the catastrophe bond, attendees heard from expert speakers that have been in the sector for years, as well as newcomers with ideas of how to innovate the cat bond and ILS market going forwards.

Attendees came from as far afield as New Zealand, Hawaii, Asia, North and South America, Bermuda, as well as a large European contingent, plus as you’d expect numerous London marketplace leaders in ILS and reinsurance.

This first video from the event features Michael Millette, Founder & Managing Partner, Hudson Structured Capital Management, who gave a keynote speech on the catastrophe bond market to celebrate 25 years of its development.

During his keynote Millette said, “It’s important to have this conference now and to commemorate 25 years, because the cat market, the cat bond market, and the broader reinsurance market, are all wrestling with and reconsidering some aspects of their structure in light of the difficult experience of the last five years. So, it’s a good time to take stock.”

Little did he know at the time that hurricane Ian would be making landfall in Florida within a month of the event.

Millette was then joined on stage by Alan Punter, NED, Occam Underwriting, where the pair discussed 25 landmark catastrophe bond deals from across the first 25 years of the cat bond market.

Punter has written a wonderful book about these transactions, which has been published and was made available first to all those attending our London conference.

We’re now delighted to make that book more widely available and you can download a PDF copy of A Celebration of 25 years of Insurance-Linked Securitisation through 25 Landmark Deals.
