Capital market solutions – Alternative risk transfer beyond traditional reinsurance

Alternative risk transfer solutions extend Munich Re’s offering to clients in the agriculture sector. They provide access to the capital markets.

Besides financial reinsurance and traditional reinsurance, alternative risk transfer products are increasingly establishing themselves in the agricultural sector as efficient risk management tools. The main focus is to cover peak risks from natural catastrophes.

Particularly through securitisation with insurance-linked securities (ILS), risks are transferred to the capital markets with the possibility to trade these securities on the secondary market. ILS have gained a foothold as an alternative asset category for investors and as an alternative form of reinsurance for insurers.

Munich Re sees capital-market-based insurance solutions as a useful complement to traditional reinsurance. Clients benefit from the neutral consultancy they receive for using capital market products for individual risks. By combining its capital market and reinsurance expertise, Munich Re develops integrated solutions tailored to the client’s risk management. We offer catastrophe bonds as well as catastrophe and risk swaps.

For our clients in the agriculture industry and insurance sector, we have set up a dedicated team that helps develop alternative risk solutions for companies in the agricultural sector.

Feel free to contact us if you would like more information.
