US insurer Liberty Mutual's forthcoming cat bond, Mystic Re II, has been assigned a BB rating by Standard & Poor's.

The $200m of Series 2009-1 notes will cover US hurricane and earthquake losses above a weighted insured industry loss trigger level of $50bn, with an exhaustion point of $55bn. The term of the cover is three years.

The risk modelling for the deal is based on AIR's 2008 US hurricane and earthquake models.
