ILS NYC 2022, Session 4, ResponsibleThis video is of the fourth panel session from our recent Artemis ILS NYC 2022 conference, held in New York City on April 22nd, 2022, the largest insurance-linked securities conference in the world since our last in Feb 2020, prior to the pandemic.

More than 200 attendees assembled in New York to hear industry expert speakers under the theme of “(Re)setting the scene”, discussing the future of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market as the COVID-19 pandemic abates and the industry adjusted to another year of catastrophe losses.

This was the fourth session of the conference and featured featured a lively debate on the topic of responsible investing and what that means for insurance-linked securities.

The panel discussed the fact the ILS asset class already provides responsible protection and so responsible investment opportunities, but how can this be built on and expanded in the coming years, and also asked what climate and ESG mean in the context of ILS investment strategies.

The session was moderated by: Tom Johansmeyer, Head of PCS, Verisk Insurance Solutions. Participants were: Lorenzo Volpi, Managing Partner, Leadenhall Capital Partners LLP; Tanya Watters, Vice President, ILS, Neuberger Berman; and Craig Hupper, SVP & MD, Environmental, Social and Governance, TransRe.

The full video is an hour long and features a thoughtful debate that ranges around the topic of environmental, social and governance (ESG), its importance for the ILS industry, as well as how climate change factors into that.
