  • Swiss Re and Axa took the principle of [mortality derivatives] further with extreme-mortality bonds. These make a profit for the issuer if there’s a sudden spike in the death rate and thus can be used to hedge an insurer against a range of high-impact, low-probability events such as a bird flu pandemic.
