The year ahead will continue to see the emergence of innovative structures between the traditional and ILS markets, as Paul Schultz, CEO of Aon Benfield Securities explains.
While catastrophe bond growth may appear flat year-on-year in 2015, the reign of collateralised reinsurance will continue, as sidecar activity booms and new and evolutionary ways to utilise the capital market appetite continue to flow.
Speaking of the activity in Q1, and the current trends in the market, Paul Schultz, CEO of Aon Benfield Securities, says that 2015 is performing as expected.
“Through the first six weeks of 2015, we’re on par with last year’s issuance levels, and this is consistent with our view that ILS issuance growth in 2015 is going to be flat on a year-over-year basis,” he says.
