Roubini Launches Alternative Haven Trade for the Era of Endless Inflation
Updated: Aug 9
Nouriel Roubini — famous for forecasting the 2008 global financial crisis — is pivoting quickly to offer investors safe havens during the present one. In an interview with Bloomberg, he details the hedges his firm Atlas Capital is launching with Goldman Sachs — a suite of products combining assets such as short-term U.S. Treasuries, gold, and what he describes as “environmentally-resilient real estate.”
Climate Alpha is proud that Atlas Capital has been one of our first clients, partnering to create a first-of-its-kind REIT Sustainability Index scoring more than 200 publicly-traded REITs on the impacts of climate-related criteria to valuations. Our technology and methodology helps enable Atlas to dynamically respond to the shocks disrupting the global economy.
Atlas Capital’s CEO Reza Bundy rightly notes that investors need protection against existential threats, including climate change. Our partnership aims to do just that, not only by creating financial products that hedge against volatility but also by pointing investors towards the most resilient geographies of the future.
