Hong Kong: Protection gaps, Chinese municipalities a key focus for ILS ambitions

After its government expressed its desire to attract more insurance-linked securities (ILS) sponsors to the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region, highlighting a commitment to develop its ILS market, executives from the Insurance Authority have made filling protection gaps a key focus of its ILS ambition.

This will include not just attracting international insurance and reinsurance issuers of catastrophe bonds, but more importantly developing the capital market disaster risk transfer facilities for local insurers and reinsurers, as well as for municipalities in China.

Hong Kong has always had a desire to introduce and integrate ILS risk financing for the belt and road initiative and Greater Bay region.
