The use of insurance linked securities in ceded reinsurance programs continues to expand. What began decades ago with industry loss warranties and cat bonds has grown to substantially include sidecars and collateralized reinsurance. This session will provide a high-level overview of ILS instruments and how they complement the use of traditional reinsurance. It will then discuss recent activities in the ILS market relative to catastrophe events that occurred between 2017 and 2019. Finally, it will touch on the ILS funds’ expanding appetite for non-cat risk, including short-tail liability lines, cyber risk, and run-off portfolios.
