As with every private ILS or cat bond deal we encounter and source some information about, details are limited, so we’ve had to make a number of assumptions.
Isosceles Insurance Ltd. has issued $60.5 million of Series 2022-A notes, with three tranches of privately placed insurance-linked notes, or private cat bonds sold to investors.
The notes will have been sold to provide collateral to underpin a reinsurance or retrocession agreement.
Isosceles Re issued a $31.5 million tranche of Series 2022-A Class A notes, a $12.5 million tranche of Series 2022-A Class B notes and a $16.5 million tranche of Series 2022-A Class C notes, all of which have due dates of May 5th 2023.
All three tranches of notes have been structured as discounted zero coupon participating notes, which is ypical of a private ILS transformation of a collateralised reinsurance or retrocession contract, converting it into something more liquid and investable as a security, usually for a cat bond specific fund or ILS strategy.
