2019 has been a year of reckoning for the reinsurance market as it faces up to loss activity over the past two years. Events such as Irma and Jebi are helping to now drive real changes in momentum in the market.
As the dust clears from the Florida renewals stand-off, a key question for all involved in the (re)insurance market is how the ILS sector will respond to mid-year rate improvements. Will investors be drawn in by improving yields to help boost capacity, or will continued tension support market discipline into the 2020 renewals? Is M&A boosting the ILS market’s growth prospects or is more consolidation ahead?
The Trading Risk New York conference will gather cedants, ILS managers, investors and advisors at a key time in the conference season run-up to January. Join us to hear from leading market participants debating key themes of the day, including:
• Capital stasis: expectations for the ILS investor response to rebalancing in 2019
• Future innovation on collateral models – unlocking value in trapped capital
• M&A reshaping – how the latest deals and new entrants will shake out the market
• Retro recovery – the market’s future role post-Jebi and Irma
