Aon Benfield Securities launches ILS Indices

Aon Benfield Securities has launched the Aon Benfield ILS Indices, which provide a quantitative view of monthly insurance-linked securities (ILS) returns, since December 2000.

Calculated by Thompson Reuters, the Indices track the performance of catastrophe bonds in each of four portfolios: All Bond, BB-rated Bond, US Hurricane Bond and US Earthquake Bond.

Each index is a total return index, representing the return an investor would have achieved by allocating an amount of capital weighted to each catastrophe bond available in the market, at a particular point in time.

Aon Benfield Securities president, Paul Schultz, comments: “The launch and ongoing administration of the Aon Benfield ILS Indices demonstrate the firm’s continued leadership in the insurance-linked securities market.”

He continues: “Additionally, we believe the added data and transparency will lead to new investment in this market and provide greater capital alternatives for our clients.”
