Insurance Studies Institute (ISI) is pleased to release Part III of a three part series, “Alternative Risk Transfer: The Convergence of the Insurance and Capital Markets.”

Part III, entitled “Utilization of Life Insurance-Linked Securities,” investigates how individuals, financial entities and government agencies manage longevity/mortality risks, and how the capital markets  -  via life insurance-linked securities –  have helped to revolutionize risk management techniques.

Part I of this series provided a macro-level analysis of the insurance-linked security asset class, and Part II took an in-depth look at the non-life insurance-linked security sector.  Together, the three parts of this research series examine how the coalescence of the insurance and capital markets has produced an array of innovative risk management tools that allow for the hedging of risks that were previously thought to be uninsurable.
