ILS funds expect 10%+ capacity growth over next five years



The majority of insurance-linked securities (ILS) funds are expecting their asset base to grow by more than 10% over the next five years, according to the results of a survey of the ILS market.

The ILS fund market is positioning itself for further growth in assets it seems, as ILS funds responding to a survey undertaken by insurance and reinsurance broker Willis Towers Watson (WTW) said they largely expect to expand their capacity over the coming years.

This ties in nicely with another finding that institutional investors are also increasingly seeking out ILS allocation opportunities, as sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and others continue to explore the potential for insurance and reinsurance linked assets to add to their overall portfolio qualities and returns.
