6 billion in reinsurance losses had been paid. It is as if the money multiplier effect had gone horribly wrong. When Hurricane Hugo happened in 1989, it was at the time viewed to be roughly USUS$3 billion in original insured losses. Given the way the spiral worked, it was very difficult to give credit for a risk retention that was represented as equal to Hugo for the insured’s portfolio. For underwriters to be able to price risk with such uncertain attachment points, there was a need to refer to an external reference point such as the total industry insured loss size.

This is the case because the wording for the risk transfer in conventional reinsurance contracts has always been very broad. Not only will the contracts indemnify the insured for anticipated types of loss, but also they often offer protection for unknown accumulations and exposures in the reinsured’s portfolio. In contrast, many of the initial securitisation efforts were catastrophe bonds that referred to industry loss size as a condition for payout, hence they contained some basis risk. Recent advances, such as Guy Carpenter’s county-weighted industry loss or CWIL product (discussed in a later chapter), attempt to minimise basis risk by having a smaller measurable unit, such as county-by-county industry loss numbers.
