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

The value of ecological, social & & governance (ESG) will grow for the insurance-linked securities (ILS) market and cascade through to the company level also, according to HSBC executives we spoke with 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 welcomed Tom Mackay, Senior Vice President and Vivian Ly, Client Relationship Manager, both from among our Silver sponsors for the conference, worldwide banking group HSBC.
HSBC is one of the biggest banking groups worldwide and uses a series of services that are used within ILS transactions, not least escrow and business trust, as well as adjacently across the insurance and reinsurance world.
However with its worldwide scale, its always interesting to hear the views of a significant gamer in finance on a specific niche sector like insurance-linked securities.
Tom and Vivian went over a range of problems with us during this interview, but one highlight of the interview is HSBCs expectation that the importance of ecological, social & & governance (ESG) will grow for the ILS market and cascade through to the service supplier level.
Mackay discussed, “ESG is everything youre finding out about nowadays in the ILS market and thats not disappearing, thats just going to grow.
” We think that drives the need for additional openness in the dangers that are being transferred, so the investors can see the ESG qualities of that.
” Were hearing a growing number of from our customers about what type of alternatives there are for them to invest the security thats published in these offers, so what sort of ESG money market funds are offered and things like that.
” We even think, and were starting to see a small pattern towards this, that it will translate into the company like ourselves, what are our ESG credentials and how are we reacting to those requirements.
” In brief ESG I believe is just starting. Weve heard a lot about it, however a lot more to come.”
