18 June 2018

Jardine Lloyd Thompson Capital Markets (JLTCM) Inc., an affiliate of the leading global reinsurance brokerage firm, JLT Re (North America) Inc. (JLT Re), is pleased to announce another private placement catastrophe bond, Market Re 2018-1, which closed at $84 million. The cat bond provides one year indemnity-based collateralized catastrophe reinsurance coverage for the cedant’s Florida book of business. The transaction has one class and was placed in the private markets alongside the cedant’s Florida hurricane catastrophe coverage (FHCF).

“The strong support from Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS) managers following the 2017 storm season shows the value of having a diversified panel of reinsurers,” commented Michael Popkin, Managing Director and Co-Head of Insurance-Linked Securities at Jardine Lloyd Thompson Capital Markets. 
“This transaction remains an integral part of the cedant’s reinsurance placement and has seen strong investor interest,” remarked Rick Miller, Managing Director and Co-Head of Insurance-Linked Securities at Jardine Lloyd Thompson Capital Markets.  

CEO of JLT Re North America and JLTCM, Ed Hochberg said, “we are pleased that JLTCM continues to be a market leader in transferring catastrophe risk to the private markets. Our capital markets team and JLT Re brokers work closely to provide comprehensive solutions for our clients.”
