The Artemis Q4 2022 catastrophe bond and related insurance linked securities (ILS) market report examines an interesting period for the industry.

Q3 2022 – 9M issuance strong despite unusually quiet Q3

This report reviews the catastrophe bond and insurance-linked securities (ILS) market at the end of the third-quarter of 2022, looking at new risk capital issued and the composition of transactions completed during the quarter.

Q3 is typically the slowest quarter of the year for new catastrophe bond issuance, but at just $266.5 million from seven transactions, six of which are private, or cat bond lite deals, Q3 2022 issuance is especially low, and comes in $666 million under the 10-year average for the quarter.
