Cat bond & related ILS market hits record size at over $47bn, up 5% so far this year

According to Artemis’ Deal Directory data, which tracks issuances of catastrophe bonds and related insurance-linked securities, the outstanding market has hit a record high of more than $47 billion in risk capital outstanding, having already risen by 5% since the end of last year.

As of today, issuance of new 144A catastrophe bonds and the few private cat bonds Artemis tracks has reached over $7.7 billion in 2024 so far.

The catastrophe bond market is running at a record-setting pace again in 2024 and with a number of large cat bond deals expected and the pipeline still looking strong, we’re now anticipating a new half-year record for issuance could be set.
