Catastrophe Risk Financing Facility (CCRIF) SPC will make a payout of approximately US$40 million to the government of Haiti following the devastating magnitude 7.2 earthquake that struck Haiti on August 14th, 2021, significantly impacting the city of Les Cayes.

This payout represents the full coverage limit under the country’s parametric insurance policy for earthquakes for the 2021/22 policy year. As CCRIF’s insurance policies are parametric, payouts are made within 14 days of an event.

CCRIF will continue to provide earthquake coverage to Haiti for the remainder of the policy year which ends on May 31, 2022, under a special feature of the earthquake policy known as the Reinstatement of Sum
Insured Cover (RSIC).
