Skymet was the first private sector entity to provide weather forecasts and weather graphics to the media in 2003. Today, Skymet is the dominant player in this segment and provides weather inputs to leading India dailies, 24X7 news channels and radio stations.

We, at Skymet think that there is a major disconnect between data/knowledge that is available and the data that gets to the farmers, communities, agricultural input companies and the government. We are working hard to become an integrated information provider to agriculture.

Skymet has its own automatic weather station (AWS) network. We are collecting temperature, rainfall, wind speed, wind direction and humidity. These observations are being used to improve our own weather forecasting capability and to settle claims for weather based crop insurance as well.



"iProf, one of India's foremost digital education companies was founded with a mission to revolutionize education through the adoption of technology. iProf started with the usage of tablet PCs as a delivery platform for education, a first in India, and has maintained its leadership position in this space ever since. At present, iProf is the only company that focuses on content delivery channels in both the online and offline modes for a student.

The company understands the core need of digital content delivery – since high quality teachers are not available at all places, technology can help ensure that the best possible content is available to students irrespective of their location. We aim to provide the best learning resources to every student so that the studies become more interesting and rewarding.

Our current product portfolio targets users in both structured learning environments i.e. schools as well as unstructured or self-paced learning, across online and offline (Pen Drive, SD Cards, Tablet, PCs) modes. Additionally, we are working towards creating world class mobile applications to harness the growing usage of smartphones for education.



Asia Risk Centre is the thought leader in risk quantification and risk management in agriculture. We are the only independent and fully dedicated and specialized modelling and analytics company in the agriculture domain. Our primary focus is on emerging markets with a strong agriculture base.

Our team members include some of the most respected catastrophe and agriculture-climate modellers as well as insurance, reinsurance and risk transfer specialists in the industry. Asia Risk Centre was incorporated in Singapore and California (USA) in 2011 with offices in Singapore, California and India. It currently has 25 employees from domains such as catastrophe risk modelling, agro-climate science, meteorology, agriculture science, engineering, actuarial science, software development and business applications.

Asia Risk Centre is part of the Daily Mail and General Trust (DMGT) which is the thought leader in information, technology and media services.

Asia Risk Centre’s risk models support decision-making at every level of agriculture underwriting, from risk selection and pricing to portfolio management and risk transfer. Agriculture insurance and reinsurance underwriters as well as portfolio and fund managers see a large value in fully understanding the underlying risk to make the best possible risk transfer and investment decision.

We provide clients across the agriculture supply chain with a consistent and unbiased view of risk when it comes to catastrophe type of exposure. Our models are based on the advanced agriculture and climate science. We first undertake research projects with leading local academic institutions and the industry to determine the best way to develop the hazard to be used in our models.

Asia Risk Centre’s ownership structure guarantees the independence required to work for all stakeholders in the agriculture supply chain involved in quantifying, underwriting, managing and transferring agriculture risks.

Our risk models currently cover:

  • 59% of the agriculture insurance premium in China
  • 18% of the agriculture insurance premium in India
  • 25% of the agriculture reinsurance premium in China from international reinsurers

Catastrophe risks in agriculture are difficult to quantify due to a short insurance loss history, a fast changing risk landscape, globalization in trades and the inherent complexity of the crop growth cycle in a wide range of agriculture climate zones and crop types. We deal on a daily basis with a variety of perils such as drought, flood, typhoon, frost, hail, epidemic livestock diseases, forest fires and complex indices when it comes to weather and yield index insurance. Agriculture risk modelling is our key focus and being located in Asia, allows us to interact with our clients, local experts and researchers and industry thought leaders to provide the best available solutions.

Asia Risk Centre is dedicated to supporting its clients beyond providing risk models by interpreting the output of our models and developing new risk transfer products. We play a key role in local capacity building in the domain of catastrophe risks modelling and advanced analytics.

With fast growing insurance markets, global trading and climate change being at the top of most government agendas, agriculture insurance, risk transfer and hedging is bound to increase further at a rapid pace. It is Asia Risk Centre’s mission to develop risk modelling solutions for all stakeholders in the agriculture supply chain
