Investor Guide to ILS: H2 2019

Reinsurance conditions began moving in investors’ favour in mid-year 2019, marking a delayed reaction to 2017-2018 losses.

These two years have provided valuable data to stress-test ILS manager performance against peers to determine what strategies have delivered in the long term.

With disruption expected to persist in some pockets of the market into 2020, where will the greatest area of opportunity lie for investors and what lessons from the past two years do they need to bear in mind?

The ILS Investor Guide is a biannual news publication brought to you by Trading Risk, a publishing company that has covered the ILS market since 2008.

The asset class is designed for institutional investors looking for a diversifying, non-correlating source of alternative risk – but can require getting to grips with some complexity and industry jargon.

This half-yearly publication provides an independent take on the latest issues within the market and a practical approach to steer investors through key topics.

The H2 2019 edition of the Trading Risk ILS Investor Guide delves into how M&A may be impacting the ILS manager model and provides a host of data on industry capital levels and renewal trends impacting future yields.

The guide takes a deeper look at Typhoon Jebi’s loss development and delves into accounting for the drag on returns from trapped capital.

It also features interviews with industry figures and an educational section for those interested in understanding some market basics.
