Insured property value in hurricane prone states to double


A new report from AIR Worldwide estimates that insured property value in coastal states prone to hurricanes is set to double over the next ten years. The report is available here (PDF format).

The annual rate of increase is at 7% at the moment and climbing which leaves me to wonder what this means for reinsurers who securitize at todays value and how a triggered cat bond could ever be expected to recoup as much as originally planned?
