Infographic: Cat Bonds in 2014
2014 showed strong performance from cat bonds. The market volume exceeded, for the first time, 25 billion USD after a strong finish in December, with new emissions of more than 1.5 billion USD.
Several new sponsors have entered the market and we expect continued high activity in both the primary and secondary markets in the spring 2015, not least as cat bonds covering approximately 5 billion USD will mature. Entropics has summed up the year in an infographic, describing the market as well as some external trends that will continue to affect the market development. The infographic is also available as a pdf.
