NZ EQC adds $1bn to reinsurance tower, securing $9.2bn for 2024 renewal

New Zealand’s EQC Toka Tū Ake, previously known as the New Zealand Earthquake Commission, has added more limit to its reinsurance tower, lifting the top by $1 billion for 2024, in a renewal securing $9.2 billion of cover for disaster losses in the country.

The EQC has been growing New Zealand’s disaster reinsurance protection over recent years, from a nearly $7 billion reinsurance tower in 2021, to $7.2 billion for 2022, then $8.2 billion for 2023.

Typically, a number of insurance-linked securities (ILS) funds participate, taking a small share of the reinsurance program on a fronted basis in recent years.
