We discuss the hottest topics in securitisation today...

In this episode of the SCI In Conversation podcast, Vesttoo co-founder and chief financial engineer Alon Lifshitz outlines how the insurance-linked securities landscape is evolving from catastrophe bonds to a wider range of structures, bringing insurance risk directly to the capital markets. He also discusses ILS modelling approaches, the involvement of rating agencies in the insurance risk transfer space and a new index project that is underway.

Additionally, we highlight a couple of recent Premium Content articles published by SCI. The first piece suggests that the US capital relief trades market is set for a thaw, following the Merchants Bank issuance at the end of March. The other piece looks at prospects for the European solar ABS market, after renewable energy firm Enpal announced a €356m warehousing facility to finance more than 12,500 photovoltaic systems in Germany.
