Julia Henderson, our Chief Commercial Officer of Vesttoo, recently discussed this issue in a video on AMbest. According to Henderson, Vesttoo's risk transfer platform is focusing on a broader range of risks that capital market investors may find more palatable.

Henderson acknowledged that while investors are attracted to the potential returns of ILS, they are also cautious about the potential for volatility. She noted that this is particularly true in the wake of major catastrophic events, such as hurricanes Ian, which had a significant impact on ILS portfolios. To address these concerns, Vesttoo is providing investors with a wider range of low-volatility insurance risks.
