"Severe climate events throughout 2020 underscore the importance and urgency for market participants to understand how climate change is already affecting—and will continue to affect—the risk and return of their portfolios.” - Dr. Jing Zhang, Managing Director and Global Head of Quantitative Research at Moody’s Analytics.

Expanding its climate risk capabilities is a top priority for Moody’s Analytics and one it has invested in significantly. ‘We are really pleased to receive this award as it’s an acknowledgement of our integrated, holistic approach to risk that looks beyond a simple review of the financial metrics,’ Tulenko says."
