Abstract

In May 2006, a resident of Key West, FL had to decide whether to renew his policy to insure against hurricane damage. The policy would cost USD13,000 for one year, USD5,000 more than what he paid in 2005. At the same time, a wealthy California resident was contemplating an opportunity to buy a 'cat note' that offered a high yield, but with a chance of losing the full investment if severe hurricanes struck the coastline of the United States.
