The World’s Largest Insurance Linked Securities Summit

2009 is an exciting year for the insurance linked securities market. Following a challenging 2008 – during which the credit crisis caused problems for the sector – the market has rebounded vigorously in the first quarter of 2009, with positive developments on both the life and non-life sides of the fence.

ILS Bermuda brings together the entire insurance-capital markets value chain, including institutional investors, insurance and reinsurance companies, hedge funds, banks, brokers, law firms, underwriters and life settlement providers. Developed in conjunction with an industry leading advisory board, the conference delivers more delegates, more speakers, and more opportunities for networking than any other event on the market.

Following the huge success of our New York ILS Summit earlier this year, we’ve taken the important decision to create two dedicated tracks for the life and non-life sides of the industry. This ensures you maxmize your opportunities on-site, delivering a tailored-learning and networking experience based on your specific area of focus.
