PCS - Emerging Risks, New Opportunities

Video from ILS NYC 2023. Session 4: (Re)newed opportunities in ILS


The fourth session of the day at our Artemis ILS NYC 2023 conference, held in New York on February 10th, saw industry leaders discussing the expansion of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) asset class and what new or emerging opportunities are now available to investors.

ILS NYC 2023 - Renewed opportunities in insurance linked securities panelThis 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 fourth video from our ILS NYC 2023 conference featured a panel discussion focused on new opportunities within insurance-linked securities (ILS) and catastrophe bonds, titled: (Re)newed opportunities – Where next and how to get there.

The panel discussion was moderated by Tom Johansmeyer, Head of PCS at Verisk at the time, but now of Inver Re since his move to the broker.

He was joined by: Julia Henderson, Chief Commercial Officer (CCO), Vesttoo; Chris Caponigro, Global Head, AXIS ILS, AXIS Capital; and Michael Millette, Founder & Managing Partner, Hudson Structured Capital Management.

The discussion was wide-ranging and saw panellists speaking about many of the opportunities they see as tangible areas to expand the ILS asset class into, with them all agreeing that one of the benefits of ILS for investors is the fact there are now more diversification opportunities within the asset class.

Speaking from their extensive experience, the panellists noted the need for continued work in educating investors about the new opportunities available in ILS, plus their expectation that market growth could come just as quickly from non-catastrophe areas of ILS, as it will from the more traditional catastrophe business lines.

Watch the full video of this ILS market opportunities focused panel discussion, for more insights into how investors can now diversify within the ILS asset class.
