Insurance Australia : IAG finalises its 2022 catastrophe reinsurance program

01/05/2022 | 06:08pm EDT

The main features, before consideration of quota share impacts, are:

  • A main catastrophe cover for lsses up to $10 billion, including one prepaid reinstatement;
  • IAG retaining the first $250 million (2021: $250 million) of each loss;
  • Second and third event drop-down covers of $50 million, reducing the cost of these events to $200 million (2021: $50 million for a second and third event); and
  • Three prepaid reinstatements secured for the lower layer ($250 million excess of $250 million) of the main program (2021: three).

The program has been placed to the extent of 67.5% to reflect IAG's cumulative whole-of-account quota share arrangements.

IAG's Chief Financial Officer Michelle McPherson said: "Our catastrophe reinsurance program remains an intrinsic part of IAG's capital management strategy. The structure of the new program is similar to that of prior years, and we received strong support from our reinsurance partners with whom we have long-term relationships."

The cost of the program has increased by mid-single digits, in line with the assumptions incorporated into IAG's internal planning processes.

IAG catastrophe reinsurance cover - 2022 program (gross)

Around 60% of the gross main catastrophe program for calendar 2022 is protected by multi-year coverage, providing certainty of future reinsurance cover. The overall credit quality of the 2022 program is strong, with over 90% placed with entities rated A+ or higher, an increase compared to 2021.

As previously disclosed, IAG's program also includes an aggregate sideways cover for the 12-month period to 30 June 2022. This provides $350 million of protection in excess of $90 million, following an estimated $310 million erosion of the $400 million deductible during the six months to 31 December 2021 (pre-quota share).

After allowance for the quota share arrangements, the combination of all catastrophe covers at 1 January 2022 results in IAG having a maximum event retention of $95 million.
