     Coping with the Basis Differential

 Basis differential can be placed or retained:
                                                                       Probability of Exceedance 
  The Sponsor can retain the basis
      No cost related to third party taking basis
      Positive value can be structured to equal or

                                                        Loss/Gain 
       exceed negative value
      May prevent transaction from being treated as
       reinsurance for regulatory purposes

  Through an Insurance Intermediary, the
   index or parametric bond can be
   transformed into an indemnity policy, and
   the Intermediary can place or retain the
   basis risk

  An Intermediary can arrange for a cap on
   the basis differential, thereby ensuring
   performance within a collar range

Determination of the Index Value
 RMS determines if a given Hurricane or Earthquake is a Qualifying Event.
 Within 60 days:
         RMS parameterizes (quantifies the characteristics of) the Qualifying Event
         RMS calculates an Index Value utilizing those parameters and the escrowed
          Exposure Dataset
 If the final Index Value results in a write down of principal, such write down will
  occur on the Interest Payment Date following the determination of the Index Value
 Any Index Value resulting in a principal write-down must be supported by an Agreed
  Upon Procedures Letter from KPMG to verify the correct application of the RMS
 Generic event and write-down timing example:
