  • The decade from 2010 ran the full gamut of catastrophe loss experience, reminding us that there is no such thing as a "new normal" in the world of ILS.
  • One of the ongoing trends within the ILS market over past years has been an increasing demand from existing investors to look for something different within their portfolio.
  • Just a few months into 2021, the first natural-disaster headlines of the year are already occupying the minds of ILS insurance risk-takers. The snowstorms that brought freezing conditions to Texas will be a challenging event to evaluate for a number of reasons.
  • Covid-19 may have been the biggest talking point in the (re)insurance markets this year but arguably, the pandemic is being overtaken by several other factors – ILS market dynamics amongst them.
  • Covid-19 and ILS strategies: locking down diversification benefits.
  • Climate change and ILS strategies: reshaping the market's response
  • Reconstruction in the ILS market continues, with ongoing concerns about investor sentiment, capacity growth and the impact of retro rates
  • Reinsurance conditions began moving in investors’ favour in mid-year 2019, marking a delayed reaction to 2017-2018 losses.
  • This year’s award winners have taken their moment in the spotlight at a turbulent time in the ILS market’s history, making their recognition all the more valuable.
  • The past two years challenged the catastrophe (re)insurance market more than any period since the Hurricane Katrina era in 2004-2005 – but it is far from clear what the outcome will be this time around.
  • What’s in a promise to pay? That was one of the questions that was circulating at this year’s Monte Carlo Rendez-Vous.
  • The ILS market has quickly stabilised after last year’s catastrophe losses – but the fallout from Hurricane Irma has continued to push claims higher.
