With the integration of PCS investors can access a variety of index-based opportunities such as industry-loss warranties.

Reduce moral hazard: industry loss thresholds and reporting by an independent party reduces risk of adverse selection of risk exposures

Diversify risk exposure: Indices allow for direct participation in an industry portfolio of specific risk

Increase transparency: Insured losses are compiled and reported transparently by an independent third party

Lower transaction costs: Simple structure and legal language result in lower issuance costs

Brokers and Insurers

On CatX, insurers can select the PCS indices they would like to use for their transaction in the submission builder. By setting the required parameters for the underlying index (i.e. attachment and limit), they are able to obtain quotes from alternative capital providers. Using index-based solutions offers insurers a number of advantages:

Improve rates on-line: Investor interest in simplified, transparent structures means insurers can access capacity at improved rates

Increase speed to market: Using an index as the basis for the protection helps to increase the speed of modeling, pricing and placing the transaction through CatX

Lower transaction costs: Simple structure and legal language result in lower issuance costs
