Catastrophe bonds & ILS issued by month and year

This chart displays a visualisation of catastrophe bond and insurance-linked securities (ILS) risk capital issued by month and year, based on data from the Artemis Catastrophe Bond & Insurance-Linked Securities Deal Directory.

With this chart you can view and analyse the volume of risk capital issued each month across pure 144a catastrophe bond deals; other cat bond like deals featuring specialty, life, mortality risk, etc; and private cat bond lites or private ILS deals.

You can filter the chart to remove months by clicking on the legend. So, for example, you can view issuance trends for the typical peak months, or for a single quarter, by deselecting and removing others. Click them again to add them back in.

Note. This data is kept current and this chart is regularly updated as new catastrophe bond and similarly structured insurance-linked securities (ILS) deals are launched.


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, specialty, mortality or longevity insurance-linked security deals and private ILS issues that we have tracked.

Every effort has been made to accurately reflect the size of the catastrophe bond market and the amount of catastrophe bond and ILS issuance each year.
