Recent and upcoming catastrophe bond maturities

by Artemis on March 27, 2012

As securities go, catastrophe bonds and insurance-linked securities are relatively short duration, with an average lifespan of three years. This means that while new issuance flows into the market there is a constant stream of transactions maturing, coming off risk and freeing up investor capital allowing it to be deployed into the new transactions. A number of cat bonds have either recently matured or are due to mature over the next few months.

Here’s a list of some recently matured catastrophe bonds along with some which mature over the next few months. At just over $1.6 billion it’s not a massive amount of capital to mature (compared to the quarterly maturities experienced last year) and with issuance in the primary cat bond market expected to keep flowing there should be plenty of opportunity for investors to redeploy this capital into new cat bond and ILS transactions.
