A partnership between US-based climate risk solutions provider Arbol and insurer Beazley has introduced a range of specialist parametric weather offerings across the country.

The products have been designed to address various dangers such as low and additional precipitation, reduced and surplus wind speed, as well as high and low temperature, and scarcity of solar irradiance.

Weather data indices were employed to develop tailormade products using triggers based on the risk and insured entities.

Guy Carpenter was the placing broker and helped with getting the necessary capacity under the new parametric coverage.

Arbol subsidiary Arbol Insurance Services has also been appointed as Lloyd’s cover holder, with a facility headed by Beazley with support from Tokio Marine Kiln and Nephila.

Arbol EVP and chief insurance officer Hong Guo said: “This milestone validates our commitment to delivering innovative risk management solutions.
