Global Parametrics

GP believes that economic resilience to climate change and natural disasters is essential to protect livelihoods and develop thriving global communities.

Global Parametrics (GP) has a social mandate to develop parametric financial disaster risk management (FDRM) solutions against natural disaster hazards in developing communities to build resilience to climate and weather risk. GRP uses cutting-edge climate, seismic, and financial risk modelling to design solutions, which build resilience and provide financial protection to organisations operating in, or with exposure to, low-and-middle income countries.
