Video from ILS Asia 2023. APAC cat bond market, Aon Securities keynote

Asia Pacific catastrophe bond market, Aon Securities keynote - Artemis ILS Asia 2023

This video features another session of the day at our Artemis ILS Asia 2023 conference, held in Singapore on July 13th 2023, a keynote speech by Yusuke Kikuchi, Managing Director at Aon Securities (Japan) on catastrophe bond and insurance-linked securities (ILS) activity in the Asia Pacific region.

Kikuchi discussed the rapid economic growth potential of the Asia Pacific region, going on to highlight the magnitude of catastrophe losses that occur there and the resultant and still growing insurance protection gap.

He went on to run through a timeline of catastrophe bond issuance in the region, highlighting key transactions and sponsors, as well as the handful of reinsurance sidecar deals that have been completed in APAC.

Importantly, he noted the convergence of pricing between traditional reinsurance and ILS rates, which is helping to make the cat bond and ILS product range more appealing to sponsors.

Going on to explain that there is still outsized demand from ILS investors for access to APAC risks, which means any Asia Pacific focused cat bonds and ILS would likely be well-received, while also saying that demand for ILS investments from allocators in Asia Pacific also remains high and further flows to the asset class from the region should be expected.

Watch the full video to learn more about catastrophe bond and ILS market activity in the Asia Pacific region.

Our next insurance-linked securities (ILS) market conference will be ILS NYC 2024, which will see us return to New York on Feb 9th 2024 for the next instalment of the event. Please save the date!
