    Equarius = Equity + Aquarius

    Climate water risk encompasses access, floods, supply chain and logistics disruptions and impacts operational efficiency and cost of capital of corporations. Risk valuation of facility-level operations, derivative impacts of counter-party credit, and their effects on equity risk pricing are complex, interconnected and poorly quantified.


    Equarius Risk focuses on generating insights through data fusion and machine learning, and delivers asset-level pricing strategies of climate water risk for enterprise risk management (ERM) decisions and asset allocation in compliance with TCFD, SFDR and SEC regulations.


    By capturing fixed asset (PP&E) and operations (P&L) risk, 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 licensed from the University of Michigan with full right of use for all regions and all applications.

    Water productivity economics

    Each company's regional asset and operational exposure to water and weather risk is quantified in a financial context to understand asset intensity and risk relative to sales, operating profit, and fixed asset investments.

    Shadow Pricing Strategies

    Opportunity cost from water exposures

    Focus on quantifying revenue and direct cost impacts from risk exposures to water availability and quality fluctuations by facility and across the corporation. These data provide insights in the internal cost of business under water constraints.and exposures.

    Climate Water Risk-Adjusted Cost of Capital

    Financial and unstructured data analysis

    Financial risk assessment of climate-induced water risk at the facility and corporate level have implications for internal cost of capital pricing, and investments for risk management strategies. Estimates of quarterly CAPM analysis are calculated.
