Video from ILS Asia 2023. ILS Investment Manager Outlook panel


This video features the final session of the day at our Artemis ILS Asia 2023 conference held in Singapore on July 13th 2023, a panel discussion with experienced insurance-linked securities (ILS) investment managers on the state of the market, in Asia Pacific and globally, as well as giving their ILS outlook.

ILS investment manager outlook panel - Artemis ILS Asia 2023The panel session discussed the current state of the catastrophe bond and ILS market, from the vantage point of experienced asset managers focused on this marketplace.

The panellists taking part were: John DeCaro, Founding Principal, Elementum Advisors, LLC; Peter DiFiore, Managing Director, Neuberger Berman; and Stephan Ruoff, Head of ILS, Schroders Capital.

The group explored what the current attractions are for investors to look at the ILS asset class, particularly those in the Asia Pacific region.

In addition, a discussion was had as to how further institutionalisation of the ILS asset class could help it to deliver on its growth potential.

Pricing in catastrophe bonds was also discussed, with panellists opining on the softening of prices that has been seen through recent months.

Overall, investor appetite for ILS is viewed as increasing, but with the market still needing to evidence the improvements to the product and underwriting or structural changes that have been made, as well as to deliver the reinsurance-linked returns investors are expecting.

Watch the full video to gain insights from these very experienced ILS asset management professionals.
