Insurance Linked Securities

For many years we have used a wide range of financial market instruments such as Insurance Linked Securities and swaps to transfer risk to the capital markets. In view of the volatility of the available retrocession and reinsurance capacity and of the pricing cycle, we regard capital market solutions as viable options for covering insurance risks. In this business segment we arrange transactions on behalf of clients, actively invest in Insurance Linked Securities and sponsor our own securitizations.


The following table provides an overview of outstanding Insurance Linked Securities that Munich Re has arranged on behalf of clients/ issued for our own book.
