Target Clients

Our team works with corporations and municipalities seeking to mitigate their financial exposure to variations in weather conditions and weather-driven commodity prices. We have significant experience creating value-added solutions for our clients in the global energy, construction, transportation, renewable energy, retail and agriculture industries.


We provide a wide range of products tailored to meet our client’s specific requirements.

WeatherLock® financial products address volatility primarily in weather-driven volumes and can be indexed to temperature, rainfall, snowfall, humidity, solar radiation, wind speed and other weather variables.  

CommodityFlex® products are triggered by the interaction of both weather and commodity indices thereby providing a greater degree of payment specificity for our clients in weather-driven commodity businesses like energy and agriculture. These products can protect against weather-driven fluctuations in energy prices including natural gas and power as well as a wide variety of crop prices such as corn, wheat and cotton.
