Corporate risk in Asia & the role of ILS panel - Artemis ILS Asia 2023
This episode features a panel discussion from our ILS Asia 2023 conference, where participants discussed corporate risk management in Asia and how large insurance buyers think of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) opportunity.
This session was moderated by Steve Tunstall, Director, PARIMA.org. The panellists taking part were: Kelvin Wu, Head of Insurance, Weybourne Holdings; Mansi Kalra, Managing Director, JBA Risk Management Pte Ltd; Franck Baron, Chief Risk Officer, International SOS; and George McGhie, Strategic Adviser - Asia Pacific, Artex Risk Solutions.
The panel session sought to explore the potential role of insurance-linked securities (ILS) in corporate risk management.
The group discussed how corporate risk managers and insurance buyers think of the ILS opportunity and whether they believe it is a viable and complementary source of risk capital to add to their insurance towers.
They also explored the broader potential for use of insurance-linked securities (ILS) in corporate risk management, as well as topics such as parametric risk transfer, which is becoming a key corporate risk transfer tool.
With two insurance buyers on the panel representing large users of risk transfer, the panel provided an insightful look into how corporates might increasingly look to ILS and what the ILS market can do to help them engage more with the capital markets as a source of insurance risk transfer.
