Weather indices can be based on variables such as temperature, rainfall, snowfall, humidity, solar radiation and wind speed while commodity indices include natural gas and power prices as well as a wide variety of agricultural prices for crops such as corn, wheat and cotton. Contracts can range in duration from several days to several years and be written in a variety of world currencies.
Our team works with corporations and municipalities seeking to mitigate their financial exposure to variations in weather conditions and weather-driven commodity prices. We have significant experience creating value-added solutions for our clients in the global energy, construction, transportation, renewable energy, retail and agriculture industries.
Sompo Global Weather offers significant transactional capacity and products can be delivered on a global basis as either derivatives or (re)insurance.
