Catastrophe Bond (Cat Bond)

Back to Finance Glossary | Previous Page

A catastrophe bond, or cat bond, is a way for insurance agents to transfer risks to investors.

A cat bond is usually structured so that if a major natural catastrophe hits, the principal paid by the investors is forgiven and used by the insurer to pay claims.

Cat bonds are attractive to investors because the risks are not correlated with the business cycle and provide natural diversification.
