Life & Pension Risk magazine are reporting here that Munich Re are considering branching out into the longevity risk market. They say that they are working on creating tailor made solutions for longevity. Munich Re are said to be cautious about becoming over exposed to longevity risks and are still discussing internally whether to hold that risk themselves or to transfer it to the capital markets via insurance-linked securities.
We think it’s likely that any major reinsurer getting involved in the longevity market will utilise capital market tools to get at least a portion of the risk off their balancesheet.
