Three panel discussions will feature at next month’s Bermuda International Life & Annuity Conference presented by the Bermuda International Long Term Insurers and Reinsurers.

The conference will be held at Pier 6 in Hamilton on September 7.

Natasha Scotland-Courcy, the Biltir chairwoman, will moderate a panel discussing, “The opportunities and challenges of regulating long-term reinsurance”.

She will be joined by Martin Maringi, deputy director insurance supervision, Bermuda Monetary Authority; Andrew Mais, commissioner, Connecticut Insurance Department; and Gary Anderson, commissioner, Massachusetts Insurance Department.

They will discuss the global protection gap that exists in the availability of pension benefits, the influx of capital into the sector and cross-border reinsurance.

Club Vita, the longevity analytics company, will moderate a “Post-Covid mortality trends” panel, which will feature Josh Stirling, founder of Insurance Collaboration to Save Lives, and Jordi Posthumus, VP longevity trading, Hannover Re.

The panel will explore contrasting views of future mortality trends and the potential implications for the long-term insurance and reinsurance industry in the post-pandemic world.

Biltir executive adviser Curtis Dickinson will moderate a panel on “A new landscape where asset managers and long-term life reinsurers meet”.

Joining Mr Dickinson will be Vishal Sheth, co-head global FIG, Apollo Global Management; Philip Sherrill, chief strategy officer, Global Atlantic Financial Group; and Nat Barker, head of fixed-income portfolio, MassMutual.

They will examine key talking points including the origins of the business; the reason long-term insurance companies are looking to asset managers to assist in their asset management; the product types leveraging these new relationships; the role regulation plays in these business relationships; and the effect interest rates and inflation will have on the sector and its current trends.

Biltir executive director Christine Patton said: “We are delighted with the expertise we’ve been able to put together for our tenth annual conference.

“Our guests can look forward to a day full of valuable insight and networking opportunities covering pertinent topics in our industry.”

Biltir represents 56 life re/insurers and 21 associate members in Bermuda that provide life and annuity products and employ more than 1,000 people on the island.
