An introduction to Insurance Linked Securities

This session is designed to introduce this less well known asset class in a simple fashion. Insurance-linked securities (ILS) can serve as an important diversification tool for investors because returns are not correlated with traditional asset classes. Created only as recently as in the 1990s, this market allows investors access to unique income streams driven by insurance risks predominantly, but not wholly, out of natural catastrophes. And with climate change at the forefront of everyones’ minds, the premiums being paid to insure against some of these risks are on the rise, providing an unique opportunity to consider investment in this market. Mark Gibson who heads up product and solutions for insurance linked securities at Schroders Capital will introduce the asset class, discuss the investment case and give you a feel for the size of the market and the opportunities that are available to investors today.


This event will be allocated 1 CPD hours by the IAPF for on-going trustee training requirements. We will apply for 1 CPD hour from the LIA (TBC), the IOB (TBC) and the IIPM under category 2. Pensions, Category 3. Savings and Investments and Pension Trustee Practitioners (PTP) hours. If you have a query relating to the CPD hours, please contact the relevant awarding bodies.
