Alternative reinsurance capital levels, largely in insurance-linked securities (ILS) formats, declined very slightly in the second-half of 2021, with broking giant Aon estimating it fell to $96 billion by the end of the year.
This decline occurred after alternative reinsurance or ILS capital had rebounded to equal its previous high of $97 billion at the mid-point of last year.
But overall, the global reinsurance market grew strongly as traditional company capital levels increased by 4.1% in 2021 to reach a new all-time high, according to the latest report from Aon’s Reinsurance Solutions.
The broker now counts total global reinsurance capital as having reached a new high of $675 billion at the end of last year, up from $660 billion at the mid-point and up $25 billion, or 3.8% over the course of the last calendar year.
