Alternative capital raises accelerate to ~$11bn YTD, says Berenberg

Having only a few weeks ago estimated that as much as $8 billion of alternative reinsurance and insurance-linked securities (ILS) capital had been raised year-to-date, analysts from investment bank Berenberg have now upped that amount to ~$11 billion.

As a result, the analysts now believe that alternative and ILS capital flows into the insurance and reinsurance market are around $15 billion since hurricane Ian struck last year.

However, despite some early signs that the reinsurance capital supply crunch is easing a bit, the analysts do not believe that alternative capital raises and ILS market inflows are “sufficient to derail the strong rate momentum,” as yet.
