Evan Glassman, CEO of New Paradigm, commented: “We are so excited about the level of interest in the conference coming from many geographies and stakeholders in this rapidly growing risk transfer sector. The Conference is providing a unique forum to learn, further the development of parametric risk transfer, and network with other industry participants and (re)insurance purchasers from many segments and regions.”

Parametric insurance and reinsurance solutions have been around in different forms for several years. However, in recent years the convergence of technology, data and awareness has led to an exponential increase in interest in parametric (re)insurance solutions. Glassman continued, “At many of the insurance and reinsurance conferences New Paradigm has attended over the last several years there has been the occasional speaker or panel discussing either parametric insurance and/or the protection gap. We believe parametric solutions deserve their own educational forum. We are excited about bringing together all the stakeholders in the industry including corporate and government clients, leading insurance and reinsurance brokers, (re)insurance companies, ILS funds, Index providers and other parametric platform providers that are interested in learning and sharing more about parametric risk transfer solutions. We will be hosting industry experts as well as actual corporate and (re)insurance company purchasers of parametric coverage as speakers and panelists to discuss how and why this market has been growing so significantly.”
