Catastrophe bond market positioned for next stage of growth: Swiss Re

The trend of increased new issuance volume in catastrophe bonds is expected to continue, with positive growth of the cat bond market expected as a result, according to Swiss Re Capital Markets.

The capital markets and broker-dealer entity of the Swiss Re reinsurance group expects that insurance-linked securities (ILS) in catastrophe bond form will continue to fill out any gaps in property catastrophe reinsurance capacity over the coming years.

In reporting on a busy first-half for the catastrophe bond market, Swiss Re’s Capital Markets team highlight the recent trend towards a pulling-back of some reinsurance capacity that had been focused on property catastrophe risks and how that has presented an opportunity to the cat bond marketplace.
