Global Ag Risk Solutions
We are a group of financial professionals who’ve come together because of one common belief – the insurance available to farmers today isn’t working. They deserve more. Farmers need insurance that works. We’ve seen, first hand, how tough managing risk in farming today can be. Based in Moose Jaw Saskatchewan, in the heart of country’s agriculture sector. We live this every day. We know the industry. We understand the challenges all farmers face each day. That’s how this unique product was born. It’s a new, private, revenue-based risk management solution backed by a major Canadian insurer and it does what no other insurance can do. Simply put, Production Cost Insurance is a multi-peril product that insures 100% of the fertilizer, seed and chemicals costs plus a specific amount of revenue per acre. If your inputs costs rise, so does your coverage with no additional premium.
