Weather Products

Aside from catastrophe related risks, we have a dedicated weather products team which focuses on bilateral products covering a variety of weather risks. These transactions tend to be between $10M and $50M in size and mitigate Business and Contingent Business Interruption. However, there remains appetite for larger products, ranging from $100M to $500M.

Currently, JLTCM works internally with management to develop weather placements to enhance our ability to execute and to ensure that weather deals are being funneled through to select counterparties. JLTCM presented at Technology Insurance Risk Forum (TIRF) on ILS and hedging Weather Risk relating to complex supply chains. We have worked extensively with governments and municipalities, corporates, energy and energy production companies (oil and gas, mining, etc), insurance companies, and the like.
