Worldwide, unfavourable weather conditions are becoming more frequent. NewRe’s global Weather team offers solutions tailored to your weather risks and safeguards your profits against the whims of nature.

Over two-thirds of the world's economy is directly or indirectly affected by volatile weather that can have a substantial financial impact on businesses in developed and emerging economies. Affected sectors include energy and agriculture as well as travel, entertainment, logistics and construction. 

As part of MunichRe’s global Weather & Commodity Group, with teams in Zurich, Houston and Munich, we offer tailored risk management solutions that provide financial relief to entities whose revenues are sensitive to the influence of weather.

Our clients benefit from our experience, commitment, and innovative drive. We provide solutions to all and cover the full bandwidth of weather variables incl. specialized indices for agricultural clients, such as yield or vegetation indices.
