Cat bond issuance surpasses $5.1bn, $2.2bn more in pipeline

Issuance of new catastrophe bonds and related insurance-linked securities (ILS) has already surpassed $5.1 billion in 2022 and there are already another nearly $2.2 billion in the pipeline that could complete before the middle of the year.

However, despite how buoyant catastrophe bond market activity appears to be, we’re still a long way off the record set in 2017 of $9.55 billion for the half-year, which was almost beaten by half-year 2021’s $9.47 billion.

There’s still plenty of time for some more of the pipeline issuance to upsize though, while we are hearing there are still a few more new catastrophe bonds to be launched.
