Tailored, Complex Risk Solutions

Agribusinesses are generally exposed to a variety of inherent production risks that tend to increase in complexity as the size of the operation increases.  Where most commercial businesses can effectively access and utilise some or all of the standard Risk Management Options (ie Avoidance, Mitigation, Transfer and Retention) agribusinesses generally cannot.  

Due to the very nature of the risks they face, agribusinesses often cannot “Avoid” or “Mitigate” their key production risks.  Furthermore their ability to “Transfer” the risk is limited by the relatively small number of interested insurers, their limited appetite for risk and narrow range of insurance products.  As a consequence and almost by default, large agribusinesses often end up “Retaining” their key production risks which is a far from ideal scenario.

What's Available to Help?

Larger agribusinesses are often unaware they can access a range of more innovative, non-traditional risk transfer tools that may include:

•    Blended finite insurance
•    Weather derivatives
•    Index and Parametric products

These tools can operate on a stand-alone basis, be combined and more importantly can be structured on a multi-year basis.  This gives larger agribusinesses more options to effectively manage their key production risks and this is where carefully tailored, specific solutions are required.
