Parametric insurance is a groundbreaking risk management tool designed to revolutionise the insurance industry by offering efficient, rapid payouts based on predefined parameters. Parametric insurance pays out a predetermined amount if a specific event occurs; unlike traditional insurance, which typically requires a claims adjuster to assess the damage and determine the payout, parametric insurance uses objective, measurable data to trigger the payout.

This research delves into the fundamental principles of parametric insurance, exploring its innovative approach to mitigating risks associated with natural disasters, weather events, and other volatile occurrences.
