With its global scale, its constantly fascinating to hear the views of a significant player in financing on a specific niche sector like insurance-linked securities.
Tom and Vivian went over a variety of problems with us during this interview, but one emphasize of the interview is HSBCs expectation that the significance of environmental, social & & governance (ESG) will grow for the ILS market and cascade through to the service provider level also.
Mackay discussed, “ESG is everything youre becoming aware of nowadays in the ILS market and thats not disappearing, thats only going to grow.
” We believe that drives the requirement for extra transparency in the dangers that are being transferred, so the investors can see the ESG qualities of that.
” Were hearing more and more from our customers about what type of options there are for them to invest the collateral thats posted in these offers, so what sort of ESG money market funds are offered and things like that.
” We even think, and were beginning to see a small pattern towards this, that it will translate into the provider like ourselves, what are our ESG credentials and how are we responding to those requirements.
