BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Swiss Re seals another hybrid stop-loss deal with JP Morgan

Swiss Re

Swiss Re Ltd. said Tuesday it has closed a second hybrid stop-loss deal with J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. The transaction provides $700 million in retrocessional coverage through a combination of insurance-linked securities coverage and bank financing.

Last year, the reinsurer agreed to a similar deal with the bank that provided $1.15 billion in multiyear coverage.

Under the terms of the latest deal, Swiss Re will have protection from severe underwriting losses for the financial years 2023-2027, the reinsurer said in a statement.

The transaction uses a segregated account of the existing Matterhorn Re Ltd. special-purpose insurer vehicle. The transaction has been structured with the potential to increase to $1 billion, the statement said.

The transaction is fully collateralized, with the proceeds to be held in notes issued by the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, Swiss Re said.
