We are the CelsiusPro Group, an award-winning insurtech group dedicated to helping both private and public organisations to understand and mitigate the adverse financial impact of climate and NatCat risks. As the challenges posed by climate change intensify, our mission is to bring parametric insurance from the fringes to centre stage.

Through CelsiusPro, we develop cutting-edge technology for managing parametric insurance. We collaborate with clients in designing and structuring tailored parametric solutions combining risk management, data science, and risk modelling. Our climate risk consulting services round our holistic solutions suite.

NatCatPro provides underwriting services, utilizing our proprietary technology platform. We partner with insurance brokers to serve corporates and public-sector organisations seeking financial coverage against climate and NatCat perils.

With Global Parametrics, we expand our disaster risk management response capabilities by incorporating the risk capacity of the Natural Disaster Fund (NDF), a public-private partnership with capital committed by UK and German government agencies and backed by Hannover Re.

Our corporate culture thrives on core values of simplicity, sincerity, courage, and tenacity. We invite you to join us on this journey!
