New Company Helps Snow Dependent Businesses Reduce Revenue and Expense Exposure as a Result of Extreme Winter Weather Volatility

Share Article

Metar Weather partners with WeatherWorks to provide the most localized snow protection available.

Metar Weather, through its innovative insurance products, helps participants in the snow removal industry reduce their revenue or expense exposure due to extreme winter weather volatility. Until now, weather risk protection solutions for the snow removal industry have been virtually non-existent, or at best ineffective.

“We believe that WeatherWorks offers us the most localized, accurate and complete snowfall data available. Their data will help us create superior winter weather protection products for our clients,” says Metar CEO Richard Nemet.

“The snowfall data options that are currently available, particularly to the retail market, create basis risk that can make protection products less effective and possibly more costly,” said Mr. Nemet. “Buyers of weather risk protection ultimately want to know that the product they are purchasing truly matches their weather exposure. Without the most accurate local snowfall data to structure, price and settle the protection, the effectiveness and level of confidence in the product suffers.”

Frank Lombardo, President of WeatherWorks says, “We are very excited to be the exclusive provider of local snowfall data to Metar Weather. The partnership further validates the quality of our data for use in the pricing and the settlement of weather protection.”
