Wednesday webinar at one: Catastrophe bonds - predicting the unpredictable (Fully Booked)
Wed 26 Oct 16 at WEBINAR, Online


Sandro Kriesch, Head of ILS at specialist insurance investment manager Twelve Capital, will host this lunchtime webinar which aims to debunk many of the myths associated with cat bond investing and highlight the benefits of adding this uncorrelated asset class into a well-diversified investment portfolio.

From an initial top down view of the asset class, Sandro will then look to demonstrate the quantitative methods that can be used in order to ‘predict the unpredictable’ or, rather, ascribe a greater degree of certainty around the likelihood of default for a catastrophe bond than could be said to be the case for many corporate bonds in the market at this time.
