Insurance Digitalization

Our platform is your platform. Maximize efficiency, minimize costs and cut time to market.

It allows insurers to serve all client segments at low operational costs and to efficiently handle large-scale product distribution and management.

Weather Index and Agriculture Insurance

Protect your business against losses due to adverse weather.

Companies of weather dependent industries such as construction, energy, tourism, transportation, agriculture, retail and wholesale suffer significant losses as a result to adverse weather. Our parametric insurance solutions are based on data provided by independent third-party agencies such as official weather stations or satellites. The payout is linked to reported data, e.g. rainfall, and does not require a proof of loss.

  • Standardized index products for weather and yield
  • Globally available for all reported weather parameters
  • Automatic payout, no need to file a claim
  • Solutions for all weather dependent industries

Parametric Nat Cat Insurance

Get immediate emergency cash after a natural disaster.

In the wake of natural catastrophes, immediate help is crucial for the survival and future economic prosperity of people and businesses in affected areas. Emergency payments are distributed within days based on modeled wind speed (and precipitation) for storms or on peak spectral acceleration (PSA) and peak ground acceleration (PGA) of an earthquake at the location of the insured.

  • Global parametric solutions for earthquake and tropical cyclone risks
  • Trigger based on the intensity of the natural catastrophes
  • No need to file a claim
  • Payout takes place within days and can be used for all purposes

Environmental Monitoring System

All relevant global datasets at your fingertip.

The EMS serves the growing need to better understand and manage climate related risks and opportunities. The system allows analysts, risk managers and claims officers to access, analyze, visualize and download climate, vegetation and Nat Cat data from different providers on one single platform. Automated reports can be customized to visually summarize the data and provide a global risk overview.

  • Easy data access via online frontend or technical interface
  • Data aggregation on all administrative hierarchy levels
  • Monitoring of current conditions vs climatology for anomaly detection
  • Customized automated reporting including alert function
  • Crop Yield Forecast for most important crops on different admin units
  • Data import and export in different formats like csv or shapefiles

Claims Monitoring

Reduce cost and speed for claims.

The automatization of the claims settlement of indemnity-based products significantly reduces processing time. In affected areas, small losses are accepted and paid based on environmental data and sample checks. Traditional loss assessments are only carried out in larger claims.

  • Claim validation through location-specific climate data
  • Minimized and automated claims process for fast payouts
  • Event footprint analysis within days including GIS shape files
  • Calculation of expected loss of insurance portfolios
