Are you interested in learning about innovative policy and financial mechanisms designed to rapidly decarbonize the global economy? Join SFI’s monthly seminar to meet our faculty and fellows and learn more about our ongoing research projects. 

On February 25, Marc Roston, Steyer-Taylor Center Research Fellow, will discuss ways to apply the tools of modern portfolio theory to evaluating investor preferences for avoiding climate risks. This research uses various tools from quantitative portfolio management to isolate risks, and construct option-like strategies to hedge different climate risks.
