alternatives to traditional reinsurance for general insurance and life insurance. But what
are ILS and how do they work?
Professor Alan Punter (London) will tell the audience about the evolution of ILS, their
characteristics, and the current and future developments of the market.
1) Introduction – the convergence of the re/insurance and capital markets
