Emily Grover-Kopec joins Rhodium Group as Director with the Climate Risk Service
Rhodium Group welcomes Emily Grover-Kopec as a new Director with Rhodium’s Climate Risk Service. Emily will lead Rhodium’s work providing evidence-based and decision-relevant research, data, and analytics on the economic and financial risks of climate change to asset owners, asset managers, banks, and insurers.
Emily brings more than 15 years of experience in advising financial services clients on their exposure to the impacts of climate-related hazards and how to effectively manage the associated risks and opportunities. A meteorologist by training, she has deep expertise in catastrophe modelling and climate analytics, with a primary focus on applications within the insurance industry. She spent 12 years at Risk Management Solutions (RMS), a leading catastrophe modeling firm, where she led initiatives focused on client consulting, strategic collaborative R&D and product go-to-market. Emily also brings experience from Columbia University’s International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), where she monitored climate impacts and developed climate monitoring tools for use in developing countries. Emily is based in the New York City area.
Rhodium Group’s Climate Risk Service combines climate science, economics, and big data analytics to provide evidence-based information to companies, investors, and financial regulators. Our research focuses on physical risk—the risks to businesses or assets emanating from changes in the climate that are already occurring and are projected to continue in the years ahead. We provide probabilistic estimates of how the frequency of extreme weather events—from heat waves to hurricanes—are changing across an investor’s portfolio or within an individual company’s supply chains and markets. We then quantify the impact of these changes on a wide range of economic and investment outcomes—from agricultural yields to home values—using both econometric and process models. By connecting science, economics, and scalable cloud computing, we are able to provide the kind of data decision-makers needs to understand and manage climate risk.
