ILS: Breaking new ground


ILS: Breaking new ground

The ILS market is continuing to grow and evolve, says Willis Capital Markets & Advisory.

The insurance-linked securities (ILS) market continues to grow in assets under management (AUM) and influence, in part by diversifying in product form. This growth and diversification adds some complexity and nuance to a market that was originally more limited in scope. As such it may be helpful to change how to follow the market going forward.

That does not mean disregarding the old metrics entirely but simply supplementing those metrics with new ones. This is similar to how the many ways we now consume media have complicated things for advertisers. Broadcast TV ratings still matter, but viewing rates for cable as well as downloads of top shows matter too.
