Abstract

Part I, "A Broad Overview," details the evolution of Insurance-Linked Securities (ILS). Once considered to be an alternative form of risk transfer, ILS have become a mainstream method for transferring risk from insurers to the Capital markets.

Parts II and II, to be released in late summer 2010, provide a micro-analysis of the non-life and life insurance-linked security sectors.

Keywords: Insurance-Linked Securities, Insurers, Capital Markets
