[London, UK, 31st May 2024] – Industry leaders in the longevity and mortality markets came together at the Life ILS Conference 2024 in London on 21st May to discuss the current state of capital markets participation in life risk.

Held at the offices of EY in London’s Canary Wharf district and keynoted by the Rt. Hon. Lord David Willets of The Resolution Foundation, over 200 suppliers and buyers of risk, both in-person and virtually, heard from expert speakers across a range of life-related disciplines that are impacting their industry.

The overwhelming consensus was that the longevity and mortality markets are in good health.

“The presentations and panel discussions at this year’s edition of the Life ILS Conference showed an industry primed for continued growth,” said Chris Wells, Managing Editor of Life Risk News and Executive Director at the European Life Settlement Association.
