An Intelligent Insurer roundtable in London gathered a panel of experts to discuss the growth and future of the insurance-linked securities markets in Europe. They discussed the role of European investors, European risks and the potential for more domiciles.

Note: This roundtable took place before the UK government released details of new regulations designed to allow the UK to capture a share of the ILS market. The regulations, which the UK government said will “introduce a competitive regulatory and tax regime for ILS”, were due to come into force shortly after the summer recess.
