What we do

Parametric Insurance is an alternative solution to traditional insurance products, where extreme climate conditions are a potential cause of financial loss.

Parametric cover is a good way of protecting contingent business interruption where you have no direct ownership but do have a financial interest.

Parametric cover works by stating a limit with certain parameters to trigger a pay-out.

Underwriters calculate the probability of the pay-out using historical weather indexes to provide the premium payable.

The pay-out is not based on any physical damage loss, but purely the trigger point being satisfied and is normally paid within 7 days of verification of the event.

A key benefit of parametric cover is they are paid from the ground up.
