Current Issues in Insurance and Capital Markets

Thursday, April 16, 2009

Please join us for the next 30 minute teleconference in our continuing series where we address current issues in the convergence of insurance and the capital markets. Among the issues we will discuss include:

  • What will be the impact of TARP access for certain life insurers?
  • Will life insurers' investment losses drive M&A and Alternative Capital Raising, such as embedded value transactions?
  • What is the current state of the Cat Bond market, and how have the new Cat Bonds issued so far in 2009 resolved the risk of total return swaps that were crystallized after the Lehman Bankruptcy?
  • Will the property cat market experience the level of hardening that we saw in 2006, and will there be a new wave of sidecars and newcos later this year?
