weatherXchange® makes it easy to design and buy index-based weather protection by offering standard weather risk contract types that cover typical risk profiles for different industries. These are a starting point in tailoring a weather protection contract to your needs.
Once designed, a contract can be saved. Each contract is private to your login. A saved contract can be copied and modified to make it easy to compare the costs and benefits of variations of different parameters of a contract: for example the impact of changing the level of an index at which a payout starts. At any point, weatherXchange personnel are available to assist with technical questions, although we are unable to provide formal Investment Advice. We can however easily put you in touch with Broker-Advisors are who are able to do so.
When you are ready, weatherXchange then makes it easy to request prices from multiple Protection Sellers: just click on the Get Prices button. This then automatically emails a full description of the weather protection contract you need to the Protection Sellers you choose. Alternatively, it is easy to send the contract to a Broker-Advisor to request advice about it. You are free to negotiate with them the terms on which they can act on your behalf to get the best price.
