Assessing and calculating flood risks for institutional investors

A business case study on real assets

Climate change is expected to increase the frequency and severity of physical climate risks such as fluvial (river) and coastal flooding in many regions around the world, threatening lives and destroying structures and infrastructure. Over time, the implications for investment portfolios could be considerable, and it’s not necessarily obvious where new risks will materialize if the climate continues to become more extreme.

It is increasingly important for institutional investors to understand and manage these risks to their portfolios, as climate risks are becoming more apparent and real assets have longer term investment horizons than many other asset classes.

Watch this practical MSCI webinar to hear from our physical risk climate scientists on fluvial and coastal flooding and learn about the methodology we apply to assess the risks that investors need to manage. 

We outline the key steps for investors looking to get started in understanding, assessing and managing these physical climate related risks using a business case study on real assets.
