We invite two top geopolitical and macroeconomist speakers to go head-to-head and give you the current lay of the land. How do they see global growth predictions, inflation and monetary policy playing out against the backdrop of geopolitics and crisis that left a dark cloud over 2022? Are there signs of an increase in optimism?

Glastonbury - Plenary

We shine a light on complicated deal structures including local deliveries, EPC contracts, multi-ECA, multi-currency transactions, reinsurance, refinancing and shorter tenors in response to the uptick in euro-dominated base rates. Is the trend of commodity traders tapping ECA debt here to stay? Why are we seeing an increased dominance of deals in developed markets? Are mid cap deals set to be the life blood of the market?

Woodstock - CPRI Club

CPRI can be seen as one of the banks’ best friends for credit risk mitigation and exposure management, and it’s ever more important as a tool in bank syndications. While regulatory warning shots are still being fired, and its capital treatment may be challenged again, we go deep into showing how the product can best be used by bank and corporate buyers. What improvements to the product do they still want to see? What projects and which sectors are best suited to CPRI and what more can insurers do to make the product attractive? We explore Significant Risk Transfers (SRTs) and see whether they are likely to gain more traction in the wake of Basel 3.1 and the Credit Suisse/SVB challenges. Is capacity enough, and how can it be built further? Where are prices heading in a high interest rate/inflationary environment?

Social and sustainable projects are attractive assets for the portfolio, so how can we structure deals to allow capital to flow into projects where it's needed? This panel considers:

- Where do social projects cross over with transactions that have a positive environmental impact?

- What role does microfinance play in ensuring that social deals get done?

- Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) – is this helping or hindering – what is the role of regulation in impact investments?

Woodstock - CPRI Club

Our finest doctors assemble for a CPRI club industry health check - can we gauge the market’s resting pulse rate when the global economy veers wildly? How big is the CPRI market now – did it really double in capacity between the GFC and the pandemic? What prices are being achieved and what is appetite looking like in emerging markets – particularly Africa? Is quality still the watchword amid geopolitical rumblings, the Ukraine war and dollar swings? We may have evolved structurally after the pullback two years ago, but are we worried about the recent UK PRA consultation on ‘Basel 3.1’? Will regulators listen to calls to support trade credit insurance? Where do our doctors stand on reverse marketing by managing general agents and on Significant Risk Transfers (SRTs)? Will insurers ever get as excited as some banks would like them to be about SRT transactions that could help cut bank regulatory capital holdings? Costs and fears of history repeating are two constraints to writing risks as our doctors are likely to warn.

The market for (re)insuring agency finance and development institutions has been growing in recent years, as more and more ECAs and DFIs look to manage their risk exposures and optimize their balance sheets. Attendees will hear from industry experts on the latest innovations and product offerings in the market. Gain insights into the unique perspectives from ECAs, DFIs, reinsurers, underwriters, and brokers on how they have leveraged private market solutions to unlock capital and projects. How can we unlock increased risk sharing while overcoming limits to tenor and capacity offered by the private market? Can a treaty agreement be tailored to offer the same ease of use as facultative reinsurance?

Are claims that we’ve been worrying about for the past three years starting to come in now? Well, yes, but. Here we look at how, now the brakes that have been taken off post pandemic support, the market is evolving, but not quite in the way that had been expected. Are we being visited by zombies? Not so much. Old asymmetries still exist, and new ones are being created by geopolitics, the Ukraine war, inflation and climate change. How are claims evolving in the public and private markets, and to what extent is this impinging on CPRI in developed and emerging markets? Government intervention and aid may have dampened defaults, but with rising debt levels, particularly in emerging markets and in Africa, where will the figures go from here?

Glastonbury - Plenary

We invite two top geopolitical and macroeconomist speakers to go head-to-head and give you the current lay of the land. How do they see global growth predictions, inflation and monetary policy playing out against the backdrop of geopolitics and crisis that left a dark cloud over 2022? Are there signs of an increase in optimism?

We shine a light on complicated deal structures including local deliveries, EPC contracts, multi-ECA, multi-currency transactions, reinsurance, refinancing and shorter tenors in response to the uptick in euro-dominated base rates. Is the trend of commodity traders tapping ECA debt here to stay? Why are we seeing an increased dominance of deals in developed markets? Are mid cap deals set to be the life blood of the market?
