Stable uses independent indexes to make it easy and affordable for family farms to protect themselves from a commodity price fall.
The indexes are all compiled and published by 3rd party organisations such as the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB) and DEFRA in the UK.
Using indexes for our insurance products offers a number of key advantages:
- 1. The national indexes closely mirror your own farm prices
- 2. They are based in £GBP rather than €Euro so there is no foreign exchange risk
- 3. All parties have equal access to the independent data, providing trust and clarity.
- 4. If the index price falls, an automated payment is made to the farmer without any paperwork or claims process involved.
We are fortunate as an industry to have this data available to us and it’s great to be able to use this valuable resource to help family farms manage volatility.
