Weather Risk Advisory Ltd, a company providing innovative software solutions and leading-edge consulting to the multi-billion dollar weather derivatives market, has been launched. The company’s weather risk management software comprises solutions ranging from an inexpensive package used purely to satisfy regulators, through to a system offering all the functionality the most advanced weather derivatives traders require. It is therefore flexible enough to appeal to both ‘traders’, such as banks, fund managers, insurers and re-insurers, hedge funds and speculators, as well as ‘hedgers’, such as energy and utility companies, food and beverage producers, and retailers. The website, www.WeatherRiskAdvisory.com will be launched 20th March 2000.
