Video from ILS Asia 2023. Keynote 1: Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)


This first video of the day at our Artemis ILS Asia 2023 conference, held in Singapore on July 13th 2023, featured the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) giving a welcome keynote speech to our 200 plus attendees.

During his speech, Cheng Khai Lim, Executive Director, Financial Markets Development Department at the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS), highlighted the importance of building out greater structuring and deal capabilities in the Asia region, as Singapore continues to streamline its insurance-linked securities (ILS) regulatory regime.

He discussed growth prospects for insurance-linked securities (ILS) markets globally and in the Asia region.

In particularly, he pointed to the need for significant reinsurance protection from traditional and also non-traditional sources, such as the capital markets, to better protect against rising losses from natural catastrophes in the region.

Lim said that the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is committed to supporting the establishment of ILS structuring capabilities and growing ILS issuance in Singapore.

The Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) will also continue to support catastrophe bond and insurance-linked securities issuance in the Asia and Pacific region through the extension of its ILS grant scheme by a further three years, to run until the end of 2025.

Watch the full video to learn more about the activities of the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) in fostering insurance-linked securities (ILS) activity in Asia and Singapore.
