Weather indices

Weather stations measure numerous parameters continuously or at fixed times during the day.

These measures are then used to identify those parameters that most directly affect your operations and to develop the weather index the hedging contract is based on.

The most common indices use the mean, minimum or maximum, deviation from the mean, deviation from a specific reference, or the aggregate.

Practical steps

Analysis
Defining the risk

The weather-sensitivity analysis determines precisely the weather risk threatening your operations. It will identify the weather variables exerting the most influence, pinpoint the most at-risk periods, and draw up the relationship between weather and finance.

The analysis is unnecessary when the risk is simple and direct. In addition, Meteo Protect uses a weather-related economics database that brings together the weather-sensitivity profiles for all business sectors.

For any other situation, Meteo Protect will use your data to assess the potential cost to you of adverse weather conditions.

Solution
Selecting the cover

When the weather risk profile is determined, Meteo Protect helps you select the parameters of the financial cover in line with your management and profitability goals: hedging period, compensation formula, and triggering threshold.

Meteo Protect then offers you a range of total or partial insurance packages and participatory packages that protect you in the event of adverse weather conditions and limit your gains in the event of clement conditions.

Our teams will gladly provide any additional information on our range of products.
