Swiss Re has pioneered a series of parametric insurance products to help mitigate the risk portfolio of its customers exposed to Nat Cat events. Payouts for these products are triggered based on the physical parameters of a catastrophic event, such as wind speed, location of a hurricane, magnitude and location of an earthquake, as well as actual insured losses incurred.
Leveraging the Swiss Re Group's diversified portfolio, financial strength and underwriting expertise, the highly-skilled and experienced team of Swiss Re Corporate Solutions possesses a strong industry track record in structuring innovative parametrics transactions. In 1997, we arranged the first significant earthquake Cat Bond (known as Parametric Re) for Japan's Tokio Marine. Since then, the selection of triggers and covered event types has expanded considerably.
