Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS) Investment Funds: Bermuda Reloaded
Dawn Griffiths (Director), Peter Chíng (Director), Elizabeth Denman (Director) and Christopher Page(Counsel)
Conyers Dill & Pearman
June 2013
 

Bermuda may not be the first place one thinks of for offshore investment funds, but it ought to be.

Bermuda’s global pre‐eminence in the reinsurance industry is undisputed ‐ it is currently home to 1,291 insurance companies which generated a gross premium of US$107.7 billion as at the end of 20101. Recent figures show that Bermuda is the pioneer offshore hedge funds jurisdiction. In fact, Bermuda’s registered funds have increased from US$159.51 billion of total net asset value2 in 2011 to US$185.39 billion in Q3 of 20123.

Bermuda’s funds industry is in the throes of an ILS revival. The phenomenon of insurance‐linked securities (ILS) as an ascendant alternative asset class4 in these uncertain economic times has taken special hold in the funds and reinsurance markets in Bermuda. Its historical ties to the US and to the UK, the depth of market service experience, a well ‐ respected regulatory regime and an internationally recognised stock exchange are creating a perfect triangulation of the reinsurance, funds and capital markets spaces with Bermuda in the centre of the vortex.
