Inigo, the London headquartered specialty insurance and reinsurance underwriter with a Lloyd’s syndicate, has lifted the target size for its second catastrophe bond issuance slightly, with the Montoya Re Ltd. (Series 2022-2) deal now pitched at up to $110 million in size, but with the coupon having moved to the top-end of initial guidance.
Inigo returned to the catastrophe bond market for its second issuance in November, seeking $100 million or more in collateralized reinsurance protection from the Montoya Re Series 2022-2 Class A notes.
Sources have now told us that the cat bond is now being marketed at up to $110 million in size, so with a small upsize on the cards for Inigo.
As a reminder, this second Montoya Re catastrophe bond is a little narrower in its coverage than the first issued earlier this year.
The Montoya Re Series 2022-2 Class A notes will provide Inigo with North American, including Canada, named storm and earthquake reinsurance protection, on an industry loss and annual aggregate basis across a three and a quarter year term to the end of March 2026.
The now marketed at between $100 million and $110 million of Class A notes come with an initial attachment probability of 4.25% and an initial expected loss of 3.18%.
At launch to investors, the notes were offered with coupon price guidance in a range from 13% to 14%.
We’re now told by sources that the price guidance has been fixed at the upper-end of that range, at 14%.
At this level the Montoya Re 2022-2 cat bond could offer investors a multiple-at-market of 4.4 times the initial base expected loss.
We’ll update you when the final size and pricing has been set for Inigo’s second catastrophe bond.
