Catastrophe bonds exposed to the Japan earthquake


Update: Further information on these cat bond transactions can be found here.

There are a number of outstanding catastrophe bond transactions (totalling around $1.5 billion) which look like they are exposed to Friday’s earthquake in Japan as far as we can tell from our Deal Directory information. Whether any of these will be triggered is hard to tell and won’t be known until more details on the loss levels emerge. Here’s a list of the deals we believe are outstanding which have exposure in the area.
