Insurance Capital Markets and Derivatives

We are a leading Insurance Capital Markets Group

There is a current focus on concerns around liquidity and systemic risk arising from connections between insurers and banks and also insurer’s preparations for Solvency II.  It is essential for lawyers to combine an understanding of regulatory policy objectives, with the ability to provide rapid and effective execution. We have taken a leading role in developing transaction structures with insurers and banks and negotiating appropriate regulatory treatment with regulators.

Our Insurance Capital Markets Group  advise on all aspects of insurance-related financings, regulatory capital trades, longevity risk transactions, transformer and reverse transformer structures, catastrophe bonds and CDO/securitisation structures.

This team of leading insurance and derivatives and structured finance specialists regularly advises on complex transactions in conjunction with tax, banking regulatory, IP and pensions lawyers across our global network. We are adept at providing solutions to complex issues through our understanding of the cultural differences between insurers and investment banks; the way they view and manage risk, the commercial issues they face and the regulatory environments in which they operate.

We advise on structuring and negotiating a range of tailored insurance products and solutions which are sensitive to credit, operational and reputational risks. Many of our clients’ transactions involve complex and multi-jurisdictional security and other collateral arrangements.
