As the summer comes to an end Intelligent ILS asks Paul Schultz, CEO of Aon Securities, how he viewed the summer months and what the ILS market was likely to discuss at the Monte Carlo Rendez-Vous.
“The summer was not that active for cat bonds, I don’t think that anything material happened from the first half of the year,” says Paul Schultz, CEO, Aon Securities.
The themes of the first part of the year were probably greater volume in collateralised products versus cat bonds, and greater assets deployed for mangers as a whole.
“That’s what we’re likely to see moving forward as well: cat bond volume down, not necessarily a significant decline but probably not increasing either, and assets being deployed more on other collateralised strategies.”
