The catastrophe bonds AIR Worldwide provided risk modeling for


AIR Worldwide released a press shot this week announcing that so far this year they have provided risk modeling and analytical services for $2b worth of catastrophe bonds. The press release doesn’t (unfortunately) detail all the deals that have contributed to this number so I thought I’d provide a list of the ones we know about. If anyone from AIR would like to fill in the gaps we’d be very grateful.
