Allianz Risk Transfer launching innovative catastrophe securitization Blue Coast Ltd.


We’ve just added to the website full details on the impending $120m catastrophe securitization deal between Allianz Risk Transfer (Bermuda) Ltd. and their Cayman Islands based SPV Blue Coast Ltd.

The deal provides protection from U.S. hurricanes to Allianz ART over the next few years and features an innovative trigger mechanism which removes a great deal of basis risk by bringing measurement down to a county level. This trigger structure (believed to have been designed by Deutsche Bank) could open the way for smaller reinsurers to access the capital markets, safe in the knowledge that triggers are based at a lower more local level which is more aligned to their insured portfolio.
