Artex Awarded 2018 Trading Risk Reinsurance Facilitator of the Year

Jul 02, 2018

Artex is pleased to announce that we’ve received the Reinsurance Facilitator of the Year at the 2018 Trading Risk Awards. This is the second consecutive year that we’ve been honored with this distinction, though the category was called Market Facilitator of the Year in 2017.

Trading Risk is a London-based publication that is one of only a few covering the ILS market and its annual awards offers a rare opportunity for the industry to gather. “If there’s a cutting edge in insurance, ILS is it,” says Paul Eaton, business development director for Artex’s international division.  “We’re pleased to be recognized for our ability to connect capital to risk.”

According to the Trading Risk nomination committee, our nomination was due to a variety of factors. “The Artex ILS team has continued to grow and be on the cutting edge in the development of the insurance transformation and convergence space. Specifically, Artex Bermuda ILS has focused on providing unique and scalable structures to assist capital marketing participate more readily in the insurance marketplace. Examples of this focused effort in the last 12 months are the structuring and management of a Bermuda domiciled Solvency II compliant related vehicle supported by ILS capacity, the new frontier for ILS, and the development and partnership with a newly formed reinsurance underwriting agency platform.”

Representatives from Artex’s offices in Grand Cayman, Bermuda, Guernsey and Chicago attended the awards dinner and ceremony, which took place in New York City on June 14.
