Guy Carpenter introduced CatStop+, a new cyber reinsurance

Guy Carpenter, a global risk and reinsurance specialist under Marsh McLennan, has introduced CatStop+, a new cyber reinsurance product.

The company successfully executed its inaugural transaction with CatStop+ during the January 1, 2024, reinsurance renewal period.

This innovative product offers a market-validated framework aimed at mitigating the volatility associated with cyber risks.

It employs proprietary wording, adaptable design, and insights from GC’s CyberExplorer DataLake to provide comprehensive catastrophic protection at lower attachment points, minimizing the chance of basis risk.

CatStop+ addresses numerous challenges faced by cyber (re)insurers, achieving an equilibrium between protection against significant perils, tail risk coverage, and cost-efficiency.

CatStop+ offers our clients protection against cyber cat losses with transparency and timeliness. It addresses event definition basis risk concerns with a sleep-at-night aggregate stop loss cover, while also achieving cost efficiencies
