Catastrophe bond funds UCITS average 16% return for 2023

Catastrophe bond fund strategies in the UCITS format have delivered an impressive almost 16% average return for the full-year 2023, rising every single month during the period and setting a new record for this popular segment of the cat bond fund space.

The Plenum Investments Index that tracks the returns of catastrophe bond funds in the UCITS format, the Plenum CAT Bond UCITS Fund Indices, has risen strongly right through the year.

The year ended with December seeing the UCITS cat bond fund cohort averaging a 0.67% return for the month, which it turns out was one of the weakest of the year.

But it took the capital-weighted average return for USD share classes of the group of UCITS catastrophe bond funds tracked by Plenum Investments to a very impressive just under 16% (15.96% to be precise) return for the full-year, as of the last Index pricing of 2023 on December 29th.
