Futures contracts based on automobile and health reinsurance policies to be traded on the Commodity Future Exchange of the Chicago Board of Trade. The purpose is to allow insurance companies in the United States and abroad to use these futures contracts to hedge against losses on automobile and health policies that the companies underwrite. At the expiration point of the 3-month-long futures contract, certificates of reinsurance (showing evidence of the existence and terms of a particular policy or policies) are issued to the remaining contract holders. After all the claims have been paid, the reinsurance certificates are redeemed for an amount equal to the net earned premium.
