Friend or foe?

As some primary players explore the possibility of dealing directly with suppliers of so-called alternative capital, Intelligent ILS examines the implications of this for the wider risk transfer market.

As primary players become more comfortable with alternative capital providers, a clear move to deal directly with these while forming increasingly meaningful relationships is becoming evident.

Driven by price and the availability of capital, primary players are seeking innovative solutions to foster the use of this capital.

However, the trend could force market participants to adapt their offerings, potentially changing the way that risk transfer may be conducted in the wider industry in the future.
