Tokio Marine is first Japanese cat bond sponsor to use sustainable development bond

Tokio Marine Holdings, Inc., through its subsidiary Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire Insurance Co. Ltd., has become the first Japanese insurer to make use of a SOFR-based World Bank Sustainable Development Bond as a permitted investment within its latest catastrophe bond issuance, the company highlighted today.

As Artemis has been reporting, Tokio Marine has been in the market since February and has now secured its targeted $100 million Kizuna Re III Pte. Ltd. (Series 2024-1) catastrophe bond recently, with the reinsurance coverage from the transaction priced at the low-end of initial guidance.

Now, the Japanese insurer has highlighted its use of the proceeds of the catastrophe bond issuance to purchase a sustainable development bond, saying that using this “as collateral for the Kizuna Re III cat bond is supporting the achievement of sustainable development goals and contributing to the realization of a sustainable society.”
