the risk of tomorrow
TSC Water Risk Index®
The first benchmark index family that tracks water risk
Nearly a third of the world is subject to water stress, a burgeoning crisis that only promises to get worse as climate change exacerbates droughts and flooding, and as population growth fuels ever-growing water demands for consumption, agriculture, and other human activities. The effects that changes in access to water will have on businesses will be nothing short of transformational to the global economy, creating winners (those that manage water well) and losers (those that mismanage water resources) -- and in turn, creating a significant new investment, creating significant new investment opportunities. 9 of the 10 worst global risks are linked to water.
Investors increasingly use water risk as a proxy for climate risk.
Thomas Schumann Capital® (TSC) is the leading thought leader and solutions provider for corporate and investor water risk and responsible investing. TSC collaborates with world-class academia and NGOs, best-in-class, institutional-grade index engineers to transform corporate water management and stewardship into financial metrics with a view to mitigating climate-driven water risk, generating long-term impact and sustainable alpha.
TSC identified two key strategies through which forward-thinking investors can mitigate portfolio risk and realize long-term returns while adapting to climate change and environmental risk: indexing water risk in equities and investing in companies that demonstrate exceptional water stewardship.
TSC is the creator of Thomas Schumann Water Risk Index®, the world’s first benchmark index family that helps global capital markets to integrate water risk into investment decisions.
Thomas Schumann Capital® serves financial institutions, asset & wealth managers, investors to meet the strong demand for solutions that offer performance, responsible investing, and ESG in the transition to climate adaptation and environmental risk mitigation.
