Catastrophe bonds and ILS issuance by trigger and by year

This chart shows the triggers used in catastrophe bond and insurance-linked securities (ILS) issuance by year, allowing you to see the trends in cat bond trigger types, using data taken from The Artemis Catastrophe Bond & Insurance-Linked Securities Deal Directory.


The data to create this chart is taken from the Artemis Deal Directory so does include some private catastrophe bond transactions, as well as any life, mortality or longevity deals we have tracked. Every effort has been made to accurately reflect the size of the catastrophe bond market and the amount of risk capital outstanding by coverage type.
