Topical Lunch: Revisiting the disintermediation of the banks: The rise of the non-banking sector

9 October 2019 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
South Place Hotel


Following the success of our special topical lunch earlier this month, we once again gather senior insurers and practitioners to continue our debate on how the disintermediation of the banks has played out and delve deeper into the new landscape.

Our focus shifts to where assets and non-bank lenders have evolved today, and the new opportunity set for insurers. As Bank have withdrawn, an army of non-bank lenders have sprung up but a decade on from the last crisis, not all of them have reached puberty, let alone maturity. Some such as CRE debt have grown significantly, others such as SME lending are still stubbornly small. Other markets such as leveraged loans have grown significantly as banks revert to their traditional roles of origination and syndication, often knocking on the door of core fixed income allocations for insurers.

Where is the opportunity set for insurers today? Which areas still hold promise, and which perhaps have fallen by the wayside? And how do we address key issues for the industry such as capacity and regulatory alignment?
