About Thomas Schumann Capital®
Thomas Schumann was born in Frankfurt/Germany
and founded Thomas Schumann Capital® in November 2011.
While helping water technology ventures and large scale desalination projects in California with their capital needs Thomas realized that water represents the single-largest risk to people, planet and profit. His extensive research and analysis concluded that mitigating water risk in securities allows for capturing long-term sustainable alpha, social and environmental impact and the ability to drive better corporate water stewardship.
Thomas further realized that providing outperforming solutions to help global capital markets integrate water risk into their investment decisions, to reorient capital flows towards water security possesses the highest chance to advance Agenda 2030, UN Sustainable Development Goal #6.
