Swiss Re Insurance-Linked Fund Management

Original Risk: A Society for Change Agents

Florida windstorm and Japanese quake cat bonds issued


Two new cat bonds have been issued in the last couple of days. The first is a Florida windstorm bond issued by HomeWise Insurance Which we hope to have more details on soon.

The other is a parametric Japanese quake bond issued by insurer Zenkyoren. The placement protects Zenkyoren via their reinsurance contract with Munich Re.  It provides Munich Re with fully collateralized catastrophe protection for Japanese earthquake risk. However Zenkyoren, the National Mutual Insurance Federation of Agricultural Cooperatives, is the ultimate beneficiary of the securitization. The structure of the Muteki programme can be extended to allow Zenkyoren to further protect themselves from earthquakes and other natural perils up to a value of $1B through future issuances.

Further details of both these deals can be found in the Artemis Deal Directory.
