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.
ERA collaborates with global public corporations, index providers, data services, and financial asset managers to provide solutions that align corporate water risk exposures with corporate and capital markets financial metrics to address resiliency and sustainability.
