ICEYE enters into partnership with with Global Parametrics

ICEYE has entered an agreement with Global Parametrics to provide flood data to support the development of parametric risk transfer solutions.

Under the agreement, ICEYE’s global Flood Insights data will be used by Global Parametrics to design, structure and execute parametric risk transfer structures. And in the event of a flood, Global Parametrics will use ICEYE’s data to determine if a specified threshold has been met and the cover is triggered.

Commenting on the announcement, Angus Kirk, CEO, Global Parametrics, said: “Our mission is to build economic resilience by extending protection to vulnerable and underserved markets and communities. Advancements in parametric risk transfer mechanisms are critical to that mission. Integrating ICEYE’s flood hazard data into our risk transfer structures supports the development of more responsive solutions to mitigate the financial effects of extreme climate and natural disasters.”

Stephen Lathrope, global head of insurance, ICEYE, added: “By providing our high-resolution data to Global Parametrics in near real-time for floods around the world, we aim to help significantly reduce the time from impact to payment for communities affected. As a shifting climate escalates the flood threat, the ability to deliver such timely financial support and bolster resilience at the community level is becoming ever more critical.”
