Weather neutral™
An Index-based weather coverage

An index-based weather cover is a type of insurance that is triggered when the index exceeds a predefined value.

The index can be a temperature threshold, rainfall levels, sunshine duration, wind speed, or any other weather variable or combination of variables that represent the weather risk your business is exposed to. Other indices are available on request.

The cover is designed to compensate exactly or partially the losses incurred through adverse weather conditions. All possibilities are covered.

The compensation may be fixed when the weather index exceeds a predefined value or progressive if the losses caused by the weather increase in line with the index value.

As with any index-based insurance, it is when a pre-defined index value is exceeded that the loss, in traditional insurance terms, occurs.

The index value is the sole trigger for compensation.

No claim adjustment process, no additional administrative procedures are required.
