Monitor extreme weather and operate parametric insurance

Develop, deploy and operate new parametric index insurance products anywhere with this cloud-based platform

Natural catastrophes can ruin whole communities by destroying their financial base and making reconstruction impossible. To make matters worse, many regions of the world still cannot be covered by insurance, in great part because of limited data and models to evaluate financial risks.

Parametric insurance, by relying on pre-agreed payment terms corresponding to simplified modelled indices, can help provide financial protection in markets previously not accessible.

With DHI’s cloud-based NatCatEye platform, users can develop, deploy and operate new parametric index insurance products anywhere in the world.


Parametric insurance enables the exploration of new markets and helps reduce the protection gap in many regions of the world. The development of such products can be hindered by the lack of reliable data or limited access to transparent and robust information systems.

Imagine having access to over 100 public and proprietary data products to quickly design the right parametric index. You can then quickly deploy a dedicated NatCatEye cloud-based platform and begin monitoring real-time indices, receive event alerts and pay-out notices as well as manage your policies.
