Insurtech solutions to mitigate risks resulting from natural disasters and climate change
Index-based insurance: filling gaps where traditional insurance falls short
Traditionally, claims settlements for catastrophe-related losses involve tedious – and oftentimes manual – processes and subjective decision making. Parametric insurance, or index-based insurance, is an innovative approach to insurance that insures a policyholder against the occurrence of a specific event by paying a set amount based on the magnitude of the event, as opposed to the magnitude of the losses. Before the start of the insurance period, a statistical index is developed to measure deviations from the normal level of parameters such as rainfall, temperature and earthquake magnitude. This allows for claims settlement to be quicker and more objective.
Claims payout based on indices
Lower your operational costs and increase operational efficiency with a parametric insurance product.
Transparent transactions, driven by indices
With parametric insurance products, indices – such as rainfall levels – are used to determine claims, hence avoiding the need for subjective decision making and/or manual errors.
Lower operating costs
As index-based insurance removes the need for manual assessments and verification, operating costs automatically go down.
