What makes Shake and Pay a unique parametric solution?


Lower limits and minimum premiums

Shake and Pay offers all the benefits of a traditional parametric product with limits ranging from $50K to $5M and minimum premium as low as $2,250. This range of limits, which was previously unattainable, allows Insureds of all sizes to protect themselves like never before.


Speed to market: the exclusive Amwins advantage

Typical parametric insurance can take months to  develop and refine before a quote is provided. With standard triggers and rates, coverage can be quoted and bound in as little as 10 minutes through Shake and Pay’s online platform.

As a true specialist with a deep understanding of parametric  solutions, this online quoting option is only available through Amwins.
