"Most things that have not been tried will be tried," predicted John Seo, co-founder and managing principal of Fermat Capital Management LLC. "There is almost nothing ILS cannot do with the right people on board."

John Seo new "We still think that an ILS manager must think carefully before competing in the insurance markets with insurers, who are, after all, the bulk of our client base."John Seo, Co-founder and Principal, Fermat Capital
He added, "We are still in an expansion and exploration phase…looking a bit into flood these days [and] thinking about cyber too.

Seo is optimistic, just not at the present time. "I don't see why casualty can't be more prevalent in the ILS market," he said. "But right now the casualty market is too cyclical for a consistent alternative risk transfer market to form around it."

Seo agreed that it is too early to develop an alternative market for cyber, but he is sanguine about the possibility. "It's 'early days,' but I'd nonetheless love to see cyber in the ILS market someday," he said. "I believe that 'cyber peak perils' will eventually make their way into the ILS market. But they need to be truly 'peak peril' in nature for this to happen," he said, referring to cyber attacks on the U.S. power grid, the banking system or the financial markets, for example. Explaining further what might constitute a peak peril for the financial markets, Seo said it would need to create really deep interruptions rather than flash-crash type events-for example, trading volume impaired to half of normal for three months or more.
