When frost damages your crops, when you can’t move goods by barge because the water level is too low, when there is insufficient wind to power your windfarm…

We’ve got you covered

Fast
Payout is triggered quickly and automatically when the threshold is reached – reducing stress and delay.

Parametric insurance doesn’t require lengthy and complex loss adjustment.
It’s fast.

Transparent
The climate-related indices we use are objective and transparent, measured by independent agencies such as national weather services and government bodies.

The trigger and payout amount are predefined at the beginning of the policy.
It’s transparent.

Adjustable
By carefully adjusting your coverage to your specific needs, AXA Climate complements traditional coverage to ensure your business keeps running smoothly whatever happens.
It’s adjustable.
