About the London ILS Conference 

2 September 2020
08:15 - 16:00 (followed by networking drinks)
etc.venues Monument, 8 Eastcheap, London, EC3M 1AE
The ILS market's role in London has arguably never been more topical. As Lloyd's plows ahead with reforms, its future interactions with the alternative reinsurance segment will play a crucial role in delivering on John Neal's ambitious visions.
Meanwhile, as the ILS-heavy retro market continues to tighten, finding capital market partners remains a challenge that is critical to overcoming as the industry seeks to improve performance after several challenging years.
Against this backdrop, the annual London ILS Conference will be held on Wednesday 2 September at etc.venues Monument, gathering an audience of industry experts to debate the market’s evolution and help you navigate this ever-changing industry.
