Video from Artemis London 2022. Session 4: Cyber risk catastrophe bonds


The fourth session at our Artemis London 2022 conference on September 6th featured a keynote speech and a panel discussion, both focused on the potential for cyber risk catastrophe bonds and what the market needs to do for the first cyber cat bond to be issued.

Artemis London 2022 - Cyber catastrophe bonds, panel session 4This video is of the fourth 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 fourth video that we’ve released from the event begins with a keynote speech on “The readiness of cyber modelling for catastrophe bonds”, from Matt Harrison, Director of Product Management – Cyber, at RMS.

After the keynote speech, this video moves straight into a panel discussion on “The potential for cyber cat bonds”, moderated by Quentin Perrot, Managing Director, ILS Origination and Structuring, GC Securities.

Panellists participating in this cyber cat bond discussion were: Tom Johansmeyer, Head of PCS, Verisk; Matt Harrison – Director of Product Management – Cyber, RMS; and Raphael Rayees, PM, Traded ILS, Lead PM, Securis Catastrophe Bond Fund, Securis Investment Partners.

The group followed on from the keynote speech, discussing how models have evolved for cyber risks, what other prerequisites there are for the development of cyber catastrophe bonds, structural considerations that need to be taken into account, and importantly the investor appetite for a cyber cat bond.
