Hurricane Laura Final Hour Coverage, August 2020

As Hurricane Laura moved towards landfall, Tremor was busy offering hedging capacity to the marketplace. We started receiving calls early that morning from buyers looking for hedging tools and sellers wanting to supply capacity. We saw the market need and acted, scheduling auctions for that afternoon. The $10B, $20B and $50B named storm ILW auctions were scheduled at 3, 5 and 7pm ET on Wednesday. “With Laura’s rapid evolution, the buyers and sellers contacting us were trying to get a pulse on the market and see if there was appetite to drive live cat trading – the current market is really opaque, and participants were grasping for signs of life before taking action themselves,” explained Chris Wilkens, Chief Product Officer at Tremor.
