Our Origin

Drawing from their professional and personal insights; a decade's experience in natural catastrophe insurance, climate finance technology and global weather modelling, the founders were brought together by a shared conviction that the insurance sector has a vital role in building greater climate resilience. By combining fintech innovation, AI data and the natural catastrophe insurance markets, Yokahu was created to provide fast, affordable micro-insurance to those who bear the brunt of climate change but have been excluded from traditional insurance products.
