World Bank Cat Bonds & Responsible Investing

The intervention will focus on why investing in the World Bank Cat Bonds should be seen as not only an investment opportunity, but also a Responsible Investment (RI). The basic argument is that World Bank initiatives (and its mission) carry a strong intrinsic social and sustainable significance. Our cat bonds and swaps allow our client countries to protect the people and communities’ basic social-economic infrastructure from natural events, and this is particularly relevant in the emerging markets, given the disproportional effect of catastrophes to their economies.

Additionally, The World Bank, with its global access and multi-themed focus, is helping to stimulate the discussion on sustainability and resilience, making it possible for investors to support innovations and projects that integrate environmental, social and governance elements so dear to the RI community.

How Fair is Fair Value? A Closer Look at Fair Valuation for Illiquid ILS

We analyse methods and techniques being developed in the collateralised reinsurance marketplace to produce Fair Values of P&C liabilities, and compare these based on how well they fit observed market prices. We explore the differences between arbitrage-free and market-consistent methods and identify the advantages and disadvantages of the different methods.

The Perils of Structuring for New Perils and the Opportunities

Expanding the ILS pie can result from growth of mature risks and from adding or expanding the investible risks. While there is a lot more to it, getting the structures right can make or break any expansion. This talk will look at some of the related dangers and the opportunities.

Cat Bond Investing: The Efficiency of a Passive Approach

An investigation of the benefits of passively constructing a cat bond portfolio to replicate the performance of the market, with low tracking error and minimal costs.

Untangling Cyber Risk to Evaluate Exposures in Dollars and Probabilities

Unlike traditional ILS risks such as natural catastrophe, cyber risk involves an active adversary and an evolving threat landscape with nonobvious risk accumulations.
To understand the individual risks in a portfolio, models must account for the behavioral elements of intentional and accidental threat actors, measuring the relative strength of companies’ cyber defenses against the strength of the opposition they face.

To understand portfolio tail risk and evaluate ILS terms and triggers, a model must also provide a clear picture of the paths of aggregation linking the underlying risks, the potential economic impact of disaster scenarios, and the likelihood of those events occurring.

BDA London Executive Forum - November 28, 2017

Bermuda's Premier, regulator and leaders of Bermuda's global business sector highlighted the breadth, advantages and significant economic impact of the island's financial market during an awareness-raising cross-industry forum held in London late last year by the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA).

The day-long BDA Executive Forum on November 28 attracted close to 250 delegates encompassing a wide range of industries, and due to its success, BDA is planning similar events in New York and London this year. Featuring top regulatory and industry representatives in discussion panels, the forum's agenda covered hot-button topics, while emphasising the many elements that differentiate Bermuda-from the island's world-respected regulator and access to capital, to its deep pool of industry expertise.
