As we approach the end of the year, Bermuda:Re+ILS asked senior re/insurance executives in Bermuda to review the most significant industry events of 2016 and offer their predictions for what 2017 will hold for the Bermuda market.
In the October issue of Bermuda:Re+ILS, we recognised and celebrated the efforts of 25 executives within reinsurers who will play an important role in determining Bermuda’s future direction and success as a risk transfer hub. Here, we profile a selection of individuals from the ILS/funds industry and service providers who will play an equally important role.
With continued development and expansion of the ILS market, there will be no shortage of topics of interest during this year’s ILS Bermuda Convergence event, Kathleen Faries, ILS Bermuda deputy chair and head of Bermuda, Tokio Millennium Re, tells Bermuda:Re+ILS.
Despite the many challenges facing the reinsurance industry, Bermuda is well positioned to maintain and build on its role as the global risk transfer hub of choice, Brad Kading, president of the ABIR, tells Bermuda:Re+ILS.
After two decades of maturation, the convergence between the insurance and capital markets continues to compete with, and also complement, traditional reinsurance in facilitating risk transfer from insurers and holders of peak exposures, says Asha Attoh-Okine, managing senior financial analyst at AM Best.
As money continues to pour into re/insurance-linked and ILS funds, for all the bullishness from investors, the market must diversify if it is to continue to grow and be sustainable in the long term. Bermuda:Re+ILS investigates.
Bermuda is a place of increasing innovation for the ILS market, says Greg Wojciechowski from the Bermuda Stock Exchange.
Bermuda has become the force and influence it is within risk transfer because of the dedication and foresight of great leaders. In part 1 of a two-part feature, we profile 25 individuals running reinsurance enterprises and taking up the mantle of shaping the Island so it is fit for the next decade of opportunities and challenges.
As the hurricane season hits full swing, the ILS market needs to be prepared for the consequences, says Bill Dubinsky, managing director, head of insurance-linked securities at Willis Capital Markets & Advisory.
