Spring frost represents a financial risk for fruit and wine growers since orchards and vineyards are particularly sensitive to freezing temperatures during the growing season.

AXA Climate’s frost parametric insurance coverage is structured using the minimum daily temperature index. We monitor the index using data from a reference weather station close to the insured location.
A linear payout structure of frost insurance allows the client to have a payout that is incrementally larger as the drop in temperature increases. No loss adjusters are required to asses the loss, ensuring a rapid payout.

Parametric cover for a Bordeaux wine grower

Client NEED
A wine grower in Bordeaux is looking for an insurance solution to protect its vineyard against spring frost that may damage its vines.
Pain point: lack of capacity in the traditional insurance market for high-value crops as well as a high level of deductibles.
Our solution
FROST protection parametric coverage is structured using the data from a reference weather station close to the insured location.
The parametric cover pays out as soon as the minimum daily temperature drops below the predefined threshold, no deductible is applied.
THE RESULT
In the end of April 2017, France was hit by a cold snap that brought a series of overnight frosts.
The temperature fell to -0.9°C and the payout of 30% of the sum insured was transferred to the client at the end of the risk period.
