Artex Receives Market Facilitator of the Year Award

Artex is pleased to have accepted the Market Facilitator of the Year Award at Trading Risk Awards 2017, held in London last night. This category was open to professional advisers to the convergence sector who have played a pivotal role in developing either a new trading risk technology or instrument, or in developing the convergence sector.   

Justin Wallen, Head of ILS – Guernsey, accepted the award on behalf of the company. Artex was placed on the shortlist and won the category award based on a variety of factors including the fact that the company has facilitated more than $4bn of transaction limits during 2016, acting on behalf of 7 out of the top 10 ILS managers. The ILS team includes practitioners based in Bermuda, Cayman and Guernsey who have been active in the market since its earliest days; and who have also had more administrative experience in the catbond sector than any other firm. The company’s private cat bond platform, the Artex SAC Note Programs, has completed a significant volume of deals in the past two years as market participants looked for tradeable private structures. The company prides itself on market-leading turnaround time on transaction documentation, quick release of excess collateral at the end of a transaction, as well as agile set-up.
