Is parametrics the future of the insurance industry & one of the most effective ways to address climate change?

Discussion Table
10/1/19, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM (CEST)
Discussion Table 3

We're investors in Descartes Underwriting, an insurtech enabling farmers & other players to take out insurance against climate-change related risks. They build insurance policies relying on parametric data that are radically changing the relationship between a risk carrier and its policyholders. At the same time, climate change is becoming more real by the day and insurers are perhaps best equipped to make sure we become much more disciplined trying to tackle this global issue. The idea of this discussion table is to foster a debate/exchange of ideas around this topic so please feel free to come with your opinions and ideas. Looking forward to meeting you!
