Thomas Schumann Capital® (TSC) is the only solution provider for water security and responsible investing. TSC sponsors TSC Water Risk Index® and TSC Water Security Fund® enabling investors to integrate water risk into investment decisions to achieve sustainable performance, positive impact, water stewardship and engagement.
The world’s first benchmark water risk index family, TSC U.S. Water Risk Index® and TSC EU Water Risk Index® were developed in collaboration with best-in-class financial market intelligence and data providers and index experts.
TSC's liquid, investable indices enable financial institutions, asset managers, wealth managers, sovereign wealth funds, central banks, family offices, and investors to incorporate water risk into their investment process in order to provide a sound research-backed climate change mitigation strategy. To create these indices, numerous corporate water stewardship practices are quantified into financial metrics that are used to measure water risk and invest in exceptional companies while reducing investment in companies with excessive water risk.
The indices are available for licensing to financial institutions to develop a wide array of financial products, such as exchange-traded funds, derivatives, mutual funds, insurance products, and annuities. Incorporating water risk into financial instruments helps TSC's licensees to capture the growing demand for performing, responsible investment strategies while assisting investors to better understand and mitigate climate risk in their portfolios.
Investors increasingly use water risk as a proxy for climate risk.
