Catastrophe bonds & ILS issued by type and year

This chart displays a visualisation of catastrophe bond and insurance-linked securities (ILS) risk capital issued by type of transaction and year 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 year for: pure 144a catastrophe bond deals; other cat bond like deals featuring specialty, life, mortality risk, etc; private cat bond lites or private ILS deals; and mortgage insurance-linked securities (ILS).

You can filter the chart by clicking on the types of transactions in the legend and the totals will recalculate, so for example you can exclude mortgage ILS by selecting that type of deal.

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, mortality or longevity insurance-linked security deals and mortgage 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.
