Parametric insurance

what is index-based insurance ?

Index insurance, better known as "parametric insurance" is a type of insurance based on weather indices whose values are defined in advance with clients.

Unlike traditional agricultural insurance, parametric insurance automatically compensates policyholders when one of the predefined thresholds (minimum or maximum) is reached.

The process is simplified as no loss adjusters are required and reimbursement is made within 48 hours of the thresholds being exceeded.

Step 3

Setting parameters:
- Type of insurance
- Type of crop to be covered
- Coverage period
- Area to be covered
- Index threshold

Step 4

Step 5

Once the contract is approved and the index set, our experts will keep monitoring the index between a maximum and minimum indicated in the contract based on certified data from NASA and NOAA.

Step 6

An icon of a payment

As soon as a threshold is exceeded, compensation is automatically triggered.

what are the advantages?

Parametric insurance has the following advantages compared to conventional insurance, such as:

By combining data from several technologies such as remote sensing, Machine Learning or AI, parametric insurance provides a more reliable and refined analysis of risk management.

Faster processing
