The climate finance landscape presents a wide array of unknowns for investors and risk managers.
In many ways, measuring financial exposure to climate-related risks can be much harder than measuring emissions and climate change itself. Heterogeneity in corporate disclosures combine with the challenge of determining a net present value for risks whose shape and structure seem likely to change materially between now and 2050, particularly if the momentum for mitigation and transition efforts continue to gain momentum globally.
One under--appreciated component of the risk measurement process in this context relates to public policy itself. Normative decisions regarding regulatory requirements for disclosures from securities issuers to infrastructure spending to monetary policy remain in our near future. Important activity occurs nearly daily within the official sector but receives relatively little media coverage.
How can investors and analysts keep up with and assess risks related to shifting public policy standards? Our PolicyScope Platform provides the answer by deploying patented technology to increase the visibility of relevant activity from global policymakers....every 24 hours.
Our automated analytical engine surveys the global policy landscape daily, measuring activity levels and saving items so that analysts can be freed from the frantic effort of trying to keep up with multiple entities across the planet. Instead, strategic analysts using the PolicyScope Platform can spend less than 10 minutes daily reviewing global activity, diving into key documents as needed. They spend less time chasing information and more time on value-enhancing activities like analysis and information sharing with counterparts.
