On September 7, 2004, Hurricane Ivan hit Grenada with wind speeds of 125 mph (200 kmph). It wreaked havoc with the infrastructure, economy and lives. This tiny island in the Caribbean region, also called “Spice Isle”, (population 100,000), was devastated with 90% of homes destroyed and total losses estimated at over 200% of GDP (GDP US$1 bn). Traditional insurance does not always have an answer to such calamities. By July 2005, insurance companies had settled over 5,000 claims and paid out over US$154 mn. This seems rather inadequate, does it not? Enter Parametric or Index-based insurance. It seeks to fill in the gaps left over by traditional insurance. It is imperative to understand at the very outset that parametric insurance is complementary to and not a substitute for traditional insurance.
