Weather Risk Management Association

Industry Survey

WRMA has contracted PricewaterhouseCoopers’ National Economic Consulting Group, based in Washington DC, to conduct an annual survey of our members regarding weather data. Please note that recent survey data is restricted to WRMA Members only. Please contact WRMA on information on becoming a member info@wrma.org.

The importance of good data is well-recognized the weather risk management community.  Weather market data has become as important as good temperature data. In an effort to compile data for benchmarking purposes, this survey, developed by WRMA’s Board of Directors, strives to determine the size of the market, the size of trades and the types of trades (swaps, precipitation, HDD, etc.), notional values and the regions where trades are done. The data is collected by season starting with Fall 1997, Winter 1998 and so forth. All data is aggregated and collected confidentially.

Survey results are located in the members only section of this website at the following link: http://www.wrma.org/members/surveys.asp

Disclaimer: The results of this survey are based on a sample of member companies of the Weather Risk Management Association (WRMA). The results represent year to year trending in region, industry, and products. This survey should not be used as a representation of the entire weather market as every weather market participant does not submit data.
