Alternative capital rebounds to record $97bn (again): Aon

For now the third time, alternative capital levels in reinsurance, largely in insurance-linked securities (ILS) formats, have rebounded to their previous high-level of $97 billion, according to Aon.

That came against a shrinking of traditional reinsurance capital levels, as reinsurers were impacted by unrealised losses linked to their bonds, triggered by interest rate movements.

Overall, global reinsurance capital fell $30 billion to $645 billion as of March 31st 2022, according to Aon’s latest market data.

Traditional reinsurance capital declined by $31 billion over the quarter of record, to $548 billion at March 31st 2022, a roughly 5% drop, as the global volatility hit the investment side of the business.
