The time has come to view climate as a macro investment theme driving future market dynamics. As environmental crises accelerate, investors who can quantify the impact of the economy on the natural world and vice versa will gain a competitive advantage. ​Climate Alpha gives you a unique edge with our “quantamental” (quantitative + fundamental) approach rooted in spatial finance, in which geographic location, the natural environment, and financial outcomes are interlinked. 

Our approach blends data science with discretionary analysis to enhance risk- adjusted returns across the investment universe.


Our quantamental method:​

  • Leverages a wide array of traditional and alternative data​

  • Deploys machine learning models to detect signals and opportunities

  • Utilizes comprehensive training data that can be backtested and retrained

  • Augments data science with discretionary analysis for realistic strategies 

Climate Alpha provides AI-powered, location-based analytics and advisory to capitalize on climate volatility.​ We use machine learning to model interactions between climate, market, socioeconomic and other variables to identify risks and opportunities​.

Our Investment Advisory team works with you to:​

  • Quantify the direct and indirect financial impact of climate change (alongside traditional value drivers) on your portfolio

  • Capture climate-driven opportunities through signal detection that steers asset selection across real assets, public and private equity, commodities, fixed income, etc.
