Overview

The Faraday Agriculture team provide crop, livestock, and forestry reinsurance cover to insurance companies around the world.

• Crop Insurance has evolved over the years and can be divided into three categories.

Traditional Crop Hail Insurance covers standing annual and perennial crops against hail damage. It is often sold with additional named perils such as frost, fire and windstorm.

○ Multi-Peril Crop Insurance (MPCI) indemnifies producers against a crop yield shortfall caused by natural, weather-related perils such as drought, excess rainfall, flood, windstorm as well as insect attack, plagues and diseases.

○ Crop Revenue Insurance extends MPCI cover by including soft commodity price fluctuations thus protecting producer's revenue

Livestock Insurance protects against the financial consequences from animal mortality and business interruption due to a disease outbreak, but also covers accident, natural and other perils.

    • Standing Timber Insurance (Forestry) provides coverage against fire as the main peril as well as natural perils, mainly windstorm.

 

We aim to write a spread of business around the world whilst seeking to support best in class.
