Trinity Re Ltd. – Full details:
Two tranches, covering 1 year of Florida hurricane losses. The securities feature an innovative trigger reset mechanism which resets features of the bond following a hurricane loss. The reset mechanism limits the level of risk assumed by investors while providing some flexibility to the insurer to grow and otherwise change the underlying book of Florida residential insurance policies.
