UCITS catastrophe bond funds see sluggish growth through H1

The assets under management (AUM) of the main UCITS catastrophe bond funds as a group only rose by 1.2% through the first-half of 2022, which goes some way to explain the restricted capacity of recent months.

Having expanded rapidly from AUM of just under $5 billion at the end of April 2020, to more than $8 billion by the end of April 2021, growth of the UCITS cat bond fund class of insurance-linked securities (ILS) fund structures was the steadier through the end of last year and much slower through 2022 so far.

That was a massive 62% growth in AUM for the UCITS cat bond funds as a group over that 12 month period from the end of April 2021.
