I have worked on most aspects of agricultural risk transfer including reinsurance underwriting, developing new (re)insurance programs, structuring indemnity- and index-based products and modelling agricultural risks.
Agricultural Risk Transfer is my most recent project and is a book that comprehensively summarizes all core concepts of risk transfer, exemplified and that are underlined with industry case studies based on personal experience in both mature and developing agricultural markets. Having worked at the forefront of large and rapid growth in agricultural insurance in Asia and my current consulting work with (re)insurers and the International Finance Corporation (World Bank Group) has provided me with a good understanding of the current knowledge gap in the industry.
