Three days from now, Thursday 7th July, is the Insurance Linked Securities (ILS) Insight Zurich hosted by Guernsey Finance, a promotional event related to Guernsey’s insurance sector. This event follows the success of the inaugural ILS Insight event in Zurich in 2014.
Words by Richard Le Tocq:
“Locate Guernsey will present at the event and I look forward to meeting experts from across the ILS asset class to discuss the industry’s hot topics. I am well connected with the insurance sector in Guernsey, having 25 years’ experience working in the sector, and am excited to talk about Guernsey’s expertise and the benefits of taking that extra step and relocating a business to the island.
Guernsey has become a leading destination for ILS; figures showed that Guernsey licensed 66 new international insurers during 2015, with nearly 40% of the licenced structures relating to ILS.
ILS Insight will feature a keynote presentation from Dirk Lohmann, Chairman and Managing Partner of Secquaero Advisers AG, which I am particularly looking forward to, and two panel sessions.
The event’s first panel session will focus on the rise of ILS and examine current themes in the ILS market, the appetite for ILS among investors, rated re-insurers and the impact of Solvency II. The second panel session will look at the servicing of ILS funds and consider open-ended and closed-ended structures, options for administration of funds, choice of domicile, benefits of stock exchange listings and the use of delegation agreements for pricing of ILS contracts.
