Liberty Mutual has completed a new transaction utilising the Limestone Re capital markets platform that provides approximately $150 million of collateralised reinsurance capacity for its US property catastrophe programme, as well as its US. homeowners and global property reinsurance businesses.

The transaction is comprised of $58 million of Bermuda Stock Exchange listed 2019-1 Notes issued by Limestone Re Ltd., a Bermudian-domiciled segregated account company, with the remainder of the capacity provided via private placements.

James Slaughter, senior vice-president and chief underwriting officer of Liberty Mutual’s Global Risk Solutions strategic business unit., said: “The Limestone Re platform continues to be an integral component of Liberty Mutual’s strategy for accessing third-party capital.

“Liberty Mutual’s global reach makes us uniquely positioned to provide insurance-linked securities investors diversified pools of risk while bringing them as close as possible to the underlying insurance risks.”

He said: “Liberty Mutual remains committed to the ILS market and the continued support from our key partners, despite challenging market conditions, reaffirms the quality of risks which investors can access via Limestone Re.”
