ESG importance in ILS to grow: HSBC’s Mackay & Ly

The significance of environmental, social & & governance (ESG) will grow for the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market and cascade through to the provider level also, according to HSBC executives we talked to recently.In the next in our series of sponsor showcase video interviews for the upcoming Artemis ILS NYC 2022 conference (held April 22nd in New York City), we invited Tom Mackay, Senior Vice President and Vivian Ly, Client Relationship Manager, both from one of our Silver sponsors for the conference, global banking group HSBC.
HSBC is among the biggest banking groups worldwide and uses a series of services that are used within ILS transactions, not least escrow and corporate trust, as well as adjacently throughout the insurance and reinsurance world.
With its worldwide scale, its always interesting to hear the views of a significant player in finance on a specific niche sector like insurance-linked securities.
Tom and Vivian discussed a variety of problems with us during this interview, but 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 becoming aware of nowadays in the ILS market whichs not going away, thats only going to grow.
” We think that drives the need for extra openness in the risks that are being transferred, so the investors can see the ESG qualities of that.
” Were hearing a growing number of from our clients about what type of options there are for them to invest the collateral thats published in these deals, so what sort of ESG cash market funds are readily available and things like that.
” We even believe, and were starting to see a small trend towards this, that it will translate into the service companies like ourselves, what are our ESG credentials and how are we responding to those requirements.
” In brief ESG I believe is just beginning. Weve heard a lot about it, however a lot more to come.”
