With its worldwide scale, its constantly intriguing to hear the views of a significant player in financing on a niche sector like insurance-linked securities.
Tom and Vivian talked about a range of problems with us throughout this interview, however one highlight of the interview is HSBCs expectation that the significance of ecological, social & & governance (ESG) will grow for the ILS market and waterfall through to the service supplier level.
Mackay described, “ESG is everything youre finding out about these days in the ILS market whichs not going away, thats just going to grow.
” We think that drives the requirement for extra openness in the risks that are being transferred, so the financiers can see the ESG qualities of that.
” Were hearing more and more from our customers about what type of alternatives there are for them to invest the collateral thats posted in these deals, so what sort of ESG cash market funds are available and things like that.
” We even think, and were beginning to see a little trend towards this, that it will equate into the provider like ourselves, what are our ESG credentials and how are we responding to those requirements.
” In short ESG I think is just starting. Weve heard a lot about it, but a lot more to come.”
