New ‘whole portfolio’ ILS asset class could be six times bigger than cat bonds


Vario Global Capital, the new venture unveiled by Guy Carpenter and Vario Partners last week, will help create a new asset class of insurance-linked securities (ILS) that will revolutionise the way insurers manage their capital and which could grow to be six times bigger than the now established asset class of catastrophe-linked bonds.
