Examples of Parametric Insurance

Parametric can cover efficient frost covers for spring frosts decimating vineyards or orchards. Temperature is measured by private weather stations installed directly on the insured parcels to measure real on-site temperatures, thus reflecting reliably very local variations. When the temperature drops below a pre-defined threshold, it triggers a claim, and the indemnity is pre-agreed upfront for each temperature.

Wind energy producers can face up to 30% difference in production from one year to the other due to changing wind conditions. We can measure wind speed by satellite gridded data and combine this data with the turbine’s power curve to cover the loss of production when wind conditions are not favourable, thus securing wind energy project’s yearly revenue.

Parametric insurance can cover Earthquakes, Cyclones and all other Natural catastrophe perils via bespoke structures. The most frequent structure is ‘Cat-in-a-circle’, whereby indemnity is triggered when a cyclone of a pre-defined category reaches a circle at a pre-agreed distance around the insured location. This very flexible tool enables significant premium efficiency gains when combined with a traditional insurance program.

Parametric can cover hail damage for agriculture, storages in the open such as car parks, or buildings. Hail is measured via next generation sensors specifically installed directly on the insured premises and measuring hail stone sizes and intensity with a precision of a few meters, thus capturing hailstorm very local variations. Indemnity is agreed upfront based on stone sizes and density, and claims are detected directly by the station, enabling a reliable, swift and fully remote claim payment.

This concept can be applied to all weather-related events: low river levels preventing transportation of goods or making it prohibitively expensive, yield decrease causing supply shortages for food producers, flood that can be measured very locally by camera or gauge… making parametric products a flexible and transparent tool to cover in a highly cost-efficient manner all your weather-related pain points.
