      Mastering success in Insurance-Linked Securities demands expertise and evolution

      The Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS) sector continues to attract investors seeking portfolio diversification. While the sector has always contended with challenges like quantifying losses from major catastrophes, recent trends indicate a maturing market resilient to macroeconomic shifts and individual natural disasters.

      When it comes to the running of ILS funds, expertise has become the name of the game. Managers of ILS funds are turning away from “catch-all” administrators towards ones that are evolving and specialising with the market.

      The importance of experience and accountability

      Launching an ILS fund presents its own set of challenges, which can be effectively managed with a skilled team. Understanding the intricacies of the ILS market is vital for fund administrators to ensure that investor needs are consistently met, and their concerns addressed.
