ILS - alternative capital - a bright and sustainable future?

Swiss Re
Tuesday, 05 November 2019
5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
  • Young Members' event

In association with Swiss Re

Our expert panel provided an uncomplicated introduction to insurance-linked securities (ILS) and insights into the future use of alternative capital in the insurance profession, particularly with regards to sustainable investment.

The panel focussed on the increasing importance of sustainable investment, and the insurance profession's emphasis on sustainable risk - as environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns become a more prominent influencer of investment strategies. The panel also provided insights from both the insurance/investment and regulatory sides and will explored what ILS means for the UK and how they can be used to build a more sustainable society.

By the end of this event members will have gained an insight into:

  • The meaning of insurance-linked securities (ILS)
  • What the ILS look like and the roles different companies play
  • What ILS means for the UK
  • How ESG considerations impact ILS investments
  • How ILS can be used to build a more sustainable society

The presentation was followed by a Q&A session and guests had the opportunity to meet the speakers and other members at a networking drinks reception.
