DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "The Emergence of Alternative Capital in Reinsurance" report to their offering.
The 'Insight Report: The Emergence of Alternative Capital in Reinsurance' analyzes the development of alternative capital in the reinsurance industry, and also discusses the major types of alternative instrument. The emergence of alternative capital in reinsurance has led the industry to change structurally. The abundant flow of capital, along with growing development and innovation in the insurance-linked securities (ILS) space, is transforming the reinsurance industry. Alternative capital has emerged as a disruptive force, and has the potential to transform the market, or create a new one.
The majority of transactions related to alternative instruments are largely executed in the property catastrophe market in the US. The alternative capital market is predominately absent in other segments and sub-segments in the insurance industry.
The report also discusses the growing prominence of alternative instruments as an asset class. Alternative instruments have brought recognition to reinsurance as an investment strategy. Low correlation, low volatility and diversification are motivating investors to invest in alternative instruments. Investments in ILS are least correlated with the cyclic nature of the economy and the boom-bust cycle of capital markets. The state of the economy and behavior of financial markets cannot influence loss events in an insurance contract. Alternative instruments are less volatile than traditional asset classes, as the performance of the underlying asset - in this case the insurance risk - is not linked to the behavior of the capital market.
