Jonathan González, co-founder and CEO of Raincoat, said: “While fully-automated insurance holds the key to insuring the most vulnerable against ever-more frequent climate disasters, the obstacles to fully implement these programs at scale are incredibly complex. Our team hands off an end to end, fully operational, tailor-made solution that can be embedded in our partner’s existing channels, facilitating their claim response to end users. We gather all industry and local regulations, capacity, science, data and software development to deliver an automated parametric insurance product that covers all the stages of a policy lifecycle.”

Raincost’s climate parametric-based insurance solutions aim to provide financial institutions, governments, and insurers automated, end-to-end products for protecting individuals and small businesses affected by natural disasters like hurricanes, earthquakes, and floods. Raincoat develops the infrastructure and capabilities needed to deliver a scalable and automated climate insurance solution that companies and public entities can offer to those who need to be covered and protected in the face of a natural disaster.
