Home Finance Events 2020 ILS Insight

02 July 2020 - Online

2:00PM - 3:00PM


Welcome to "The Rise Against Risk" – this year’s version of our annual ILS Insight event which usually takes place in Zurich.

This year we will have speakers from the world’s leading centres for insurance-linked securities, including Guernsey, taking part in an online discussion covering issues including economic substance, the EU and OECD whitelisting process, green and sustainable investing and the industry’s recovery from COVID-19.

Guernsey has now for many years offered certainty and continuity to ILS managers and their funds, with a bespoke regulatory regime that has been specifically designed for the sector.

Our experience and expertise in both investment funds and insurance are combined in our ILS offering, as fund managers and promoters with capital to deploy are brought together with transformation managers who understand insurance risk.

Join us online on Thursday 02 July.

Kindly supported by:






Guernsey insurance experts Mike Pickard (Senior Manager at Aon) and Kate Storey (Partner at Walkers) have taken part in a discussion on the Global Captive Podcast entitles 'The meeting of captives, ILS and longevity' in which they give their thoughts to host Richard Cutcher on how the jurisdiction is well placed to facilitate innovation and collaboration between captive, ILS and longevity markets, and why this might be of interest and value to captive owners.

Aon’s Captive & Insurance Management practice in Guernsey has been in operation since 1977, and remains at the cutting edge of Guernsey’s insurance and reinsurance industries.

Our White Rock Protected Cell company was the first PCC in the world, later followed by White Rock Incorporated Cell Company, the world’s first ICC. The White Rock companies provide risk retention, fronting and transformation services to clients. Insurance risks can be transformed for capital markets to invest in the (re)insurance market or alternatively clients may use White Rock cells to access the reinsurance and capital markets.

Our ILS and Commercial clients include dedicated Insurance-Linked Securities funds, (re)insurers, pension funds, hedge funds, private equity funds, banks and other financial institutions.

Our captive clients originate from a wide range of industries including healthcare, finance, professional services and consulting, aviation, property management, manufacturing, transport, food and beverage and petrochemicals. This diversity extends to the geography of the parent/insured with organisations domiciled throughout Europe, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Africa, and Asia.

We have an experienced team of (re)insurance, finance and consulting professionals delivering client service excellence. This is achieved through being better informed through our state of the art analytics and unrivalled breadth and depth of multi-disciplinary expertise. Collaboration and proactive engagement with thought leaders, regulators and legislators, enables us to be better advised to give our clients the clarity and confidence they need to make better decisions to achieve their strategic needs and protect and grow their businesses.
