  • 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.
  • Ten years ago, amid the turmoil of the global financial market crisis, the first Trading Risk awards ceremony was held.
  • It was a rough 2017 for investors in ILS, as hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria swept through the Atlantic. But 2018 has offered some uplift to yields from the sector.
  • For the first time in years, finding a subject to talk about was not a problem at the industry's annual gathering in Monte Carlo. Hurricane Irma was the topic on everyone's minds.
