About ILS Week 2021

 

A series of seminars covering key topics in the alternative reinsurance market

 

April 27-30, 2021

The alternative reinsurance market is recovering its strength in 2021 after a quiet couple of years.

 

Cat bonds are providing reinsurance and retro buyers with a buoyant source of capacity, helping them to manage their needs in a rising market.

 

Many ILS managers have benefited from post-Covid investor interest in alternatives and grown their assets under management notably, boosting the segment after an initial pandemic drop-off in funds. But with strong competition for new fundraising wins, firms are looking for fresh ways to differentiate themselves. 

 

As the run-up to the Florida June renewals gathers pace, Trading Risk will host a week of sessions diving into the factors influencing the ILS market, from delving into the retro market to delivering on ESG ambitions to capitalising on the pace of change brought about by the pandemic

 

Each day will feature panel debates as well as Q&A with key industry players over a 90-minute session that lets you carve out a manageable chunk of your day to further your understanding of this fast-changing market.

 

The short-form sessions will have something for both ILS market participants, cedants, and investors.
