Video from ILS NYC 2023. Session 1: Catastrophe bond expectations


The first session of the day at our Artemis ILS NYC 2023 conference, held in New York on February 10th 2023, featured industry leaders discussing the catastrophe bond market and their expectations around its future potential.

ils-nyc-2023-session1-1This conference was Artemis’ largest insurance-linked securities (ILS) event to-date, with over 390 registered attendees enjoying a wide-range of insightful speaking sessions and networking opportunities throughout the day.

Attendees came from around the world to hear thought-provoking discussions from insurance-linked securities (ILS) market leaders, all under the theme of “(Re)construction & Renewal(s).”

This first video from our ILS NYC 2023 conference features a panel discussion focused on the cat bond market, titled: (Re)setting expectations in catastrophe bonds.

The panel discussion was moderated by John Seo, Co-Founder, Managing Director, Fermat Capital Management, LLC.

He was joined by: Mariagiovanna (Patti) Guatteri, CEO / CIO, Swiss Re Insurance-Linked Investment Advisors Corporation; Philipp Kusche, Global Head of ILS & Capital Solutions, Howden Tiger; Lorenzo Volpi, Deputy CEO, Managing Partner, Leadenhall Capital Partners LLP; and Chris McKeown, Chief Executive, Reinsurance, ILS & Innovation, Vantage Risk.

The discussion focused on current catastrophe bond market dynamics, asking whether higher returns are here to stay and where the market is destined to move towards through 2023 and beyond.

The panellists also discussed the differences between cat bonds and other ILS formats, such as collateralized reinsurance, debating how different they should be considered by investors, as well as what the relative attraction is to them.

Watch the full video of this catastrophe bond focused panel discussion, for more insights into the potential for the ILS market to continue growing its importance in global reinsurance circles.
