Press release from: Finance Market

Alternative capital has emerged as a disruptive force, and has the potential to transform the market, or create a new one.

The majority of transactions related to alternative instruments are largely executed in the property catastrophe market in the US. The alternative capital market is predominately absent in other segments and sub-segments in the insurance industry.

The report also discusses the growing prominence of alternative instruments as an asset class. Alternative instruments have brought recognition to reinsurance as an investment strategy. Low correlation, low volatility and diversification are motivating investors to invest in alternative instruments. Investments in ILS are least correlated with the cyclic nature of the economy and the boom-bust cycle of capital markets. The state of the economy and behavior of financial markets cannot influence loss events in an insurance contract. Alternative instruments are less volatile than traditional asset classes, as the performance of the underlying asset in this case the insurance risk is not linked to the behavior of the capital market.

Key Highlights

Traditional reinsurers are increasingly incorporating alternative capital strategies into their business models. Reinsurers are playing an active role in managing new capital and facilitating transactions in the alternative market on behalf of investors. Simultaneously, several reinsurers have collaborated with independent fund managers to execute transactions using alternative instruments such as catastrophe (cat) bonds, sidecars, industry-loss warranties and collateralized reinsurance.

The cat bond market is heavily skewed towards risk associated with US perils. The majority of capacity in the cat bond market is utilized by risks associated with natural disasters, such as storms, floods, hurricanes and earthquakes. US multi-peril, US-named storms and hurricanes, and US earthquakes together accounted for 53.4% of cat bonds outstanding as of November 2016 according to Artemis, which provides business information dedicated to alternative risk transfer.

Collateralized reinsurance overtook cat bonds as the dominant source of capital in 2013, in terms of providing overall capacity to the alternative market. This trend has continued, and the capacity of collateralized reinsurance expanded at a higher growth rate than cat bonds during 20132015. It accounted for 56.8% of the total capacity in the alternative market in 2015.

Alternative instruments have brought recognition to reinsurance as an investment strategy, with low correlation, low volatility and diversification motivating investors to invest in alternative instruments. These characteristics strongly differentiate alternative instruments from other asset classes. As a component of a broader portfolio, alternative instruments have the potential to neutralize the limitations of traditional investments. is the most comprehensive collection of market research reports.
