Parametric insurance is an innovative product that functions differently than traditional insurance by covering the impacts of an event and not just losses sustained to an asset. Proceeds of the policy are paid quickly and can be used flexibly to cover any expense associated with the triggering event. Coverages can be designed to capture the impacts of natural perils and other forms of non-damage business interruptions such as future epidemics.

​The theories of recovery, as well as the ensuing loss provisions, contained in property insurance policies are often complex and, at times, seemingly in conflict. Although a policy may not directly address these theories, their application by courts plays a significant role in the coverage determination process after the claim. It is essential that brokers understand the primary theories of recovery – Efficient Proximate Cause, the Concurrent Causation Doctrine, and the Anti-Concurrent Causation Doctrine – in order to navigate the challenging post-claim process and effectively serve their clients.
