Alternative capital hits $110bn mid-year high as reinsurance grows in 2024: Aon

The amount of alternative capital in the reinsurance industry has reached another new high at the middle of 2024, with capital allocated to alternative and insurance-linked securities (ILS) structures now reaching $110 billion, according to Aon.

The broker noted catastrophe bond market expansion as a key driver, highlighting some of the milestones passed by the cat bond market during the second-quarter of the year.

Aon estimates that total reinsurance capital reached a new record high of $695 billion by the end of Q1 2024.

That’s up almost 4% since the end of last year, with growth coming from the traditional side as well as ILS, it seems.
