Private ILS fund returns accelerate in May, beat cat bonds for first time in 2023

The returns of private ILS funds, so those that invest in privately transacted insurance-linked securities (ILS) including collateralised reinsurance and retrocession, have outpaced pure catastrophe bond funds for the first time this year in May 2023.

This is according to the Eurekahedge ILS Advisers Index, which reported an average ILS fund return of 1.17% for May, the strongest month of ILS fund returns so far this year, by its measure.

It takes the average ILS fund return for the first five months of 2023 to 5.48%, which is just slightly behind the record for this stage of the year set in 2007.
