Insurance Studies Institute is pleased to release Part II of the three part series, “Alternative Risk Transfer: The Convergence of the Insurance and Capital Markets.”  Part II, entitled “Non-Life Utilization of Insurance-Linked Securities,” provides an overview of the non-life insurance-linked security sector, from the first securities issued – catastrophe bonds – to derivatives and synthetic securities.  This paper charts the developments in this sector that have created a wide avenue of risk management techniques, allowing for the hedging of risks that were previously thought to be uninsurable.

Part I of this series provided an overview of the evolution of insurance-linked securities, and Part III, to be released in August 2010, will closely examine developments in the market for life insurance-linked securities.
