Climate water risk causes blind spots in your corporate supply chains. Do you understand the ripple effects of water exposure on your finances, market metrics and cost of equity?
Disruption in operations resulting from floods and droughts, water-based logistics, competition for water, and counterparty credit risks resulting from water exposure are challenging to quantify in financial terms. Equarius™ Risk generates financial insights for supply chain risk management (SCRM) using machine learning and generative A.I.
By capturing multiple risk verticals, our waterBeta® platform allows for risk ranking of facilities, decision impact simulations and climate risk-adjusted cost of equity valuations. Our patent-pending algorithms were licensed from the University of Michigan with full right of use for all regions and all applications.
Equarius™ collaborates with global public corporations, index providers, data service companies, and financial asset managers to provide solutions that align corporate water risk exposures with corporate and capital markets financial metrics to facilitate risk underwriting and portfolio management.
