The third session at our Artemis London 2022 conference on September 6th featured a panel discussion titled “ESG in the cat bond market. Where next?”, in which participants discussed progress on environmental, social and governance issues in the catastrophe bond marketplace.
This video is of the third 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 third video that we’ve released from the event features a panel discussion on environmental, social and governance (ESG) trends in the catastrophe bond market, under the title of “ESG in the cat bond market. What next?”, moderated by Dirk Schmelzer, Partner, Senior Portfolio Manager, Plenum Investments AG.
Panellists participating in this discussion were: Chantal Berendsen, Hedge Fund IDD Senior Analyst, Insurance Specialist, Albourne Partners; Siti Dawson, Executive Director, LGT ILS Partners; and Andy Palmer, Head ILS Structuring EMEA & APAC / CEO SRCML, Swiss Re.
The group discussed how ESG has increased as a priority with cat bond and ILS investors, what the ILS market is doing to respond to investors ESG needs and where the catastrophe bond market goes next on its journey towards becoming increasingly ESG appropriate as an asset class.
