Palomar Holdings (PLMR), a specialty property insurer, said it has completed the renewal of reinsurance programs that will take effect June 1.

The company renewed $470 million of its core reinsurance program, which includes its catastrophe bond, and purchased $200 million of incremental limit. The company’s reinsurance program provides coverage up to $1.05 billion for earthquakes, which will enable Palomar to maintain a cushion above the peak zone probable maximum loss.
