• About Us

    Equarius = Equities + Aquarius

    We are a CRM-SaaS company focused on pricing real time insights of asset-level water risk in securities for corporate financial risk management decisions and financial index designs. Our waterBeta platform allows for investment decisions by facilities- and C-suite level risk managers for climate resilience in operations and the capital markets.


    By capturing facilities and corporate level financial and operational data, our AI/ML platform allows for determining shadow pricing strategies, risk ranking of facilities, risk management simulations and climate risk-adjusted CAPM valuations. Our patent-pending algorithms were developed in partnership with The University of Michigan (UM). Equarius Risk Analytics has secured an all fields of use license from UM.
