We develop a new pricing approach by means of approximations and replication techniques and apply it to ILWs
as a representative of index-linked catastrophe loss instruments under the assumption of a liquid cat bond market, while addressing the necessary prerequisites and limitations, and we also illustrate the approach by consistently pricing different cat bonds.
In the last year, the Guy Carpenter industry loss warranty (ILW
) team has been involved in the development, shaping and arrangement of more that 150 ILW
This qualitative study focused on the reflections of pre-service principals found in work products of the ILWS
(one of twelve performance-based projects in the ALPS Principal-Administrator Licensure Program).
Intermediate Level Waste (ILW
) created by decomissioning the reactors will be housed in a new ``safe store'' and left there until between 2128 and 2136, by which time residual radiation levels will have been reduced one million-fold.
WTDs were then used to create indices of local wetness (ILWs
), time series measures of the surface wetness of the immediate area surrounding each of the seven mosquito collection sites in the Pequest River catchment and the one site in the Great Swamp catchment.
The next biggest is the cat bonds, which offer about $30 billion worth of capacity, and sidecars and ILWs
round it out with $13 billion worth of capacity.

To overcome these capacity constraints, alternative risk transfer (ART) instruments such as cat bonds, cat options, or industry loss warranties (ILWs
) have been introduced in the past decades.
Johansmeyer, who views ILWs
as a new concept for the cyber sector, said, along with other techniques, it offers "a greater opportunity to dynamically manage risk capital." Verisk Analytics focuses on insurance, natural resources and financial services.
In addition to the advantages of a dual trigger, ILWs
also are attractive because no underwriting information is usually required due to the fact that the seller is mainly underwriting the industry loss index rather than the buyer's losses.
Such progress in controlling basis risk in ILWs
demonstrates the feasibility of constructing even finer indexes, both by area and/or peril.
