“After a year of deadly and costly storms, record wildfires, and severe drought threatening millions with starvation, the costs of climate change are now visible, rising, and downright frightening. As a former macro hedge fund manager, who has spent nearly 25 years trying to quantify financial risks, I believe that climate change is the least understood and most disruptive financial risk we face today. As an advisor to the VoLo Foundation, I have been working to develop tools to help better quantify climate-related financial risks. I believe that climate change is a solvable problem and the data work being done at VoLo Foundation will help to inform better decisions that need to be made to keep temperatures safe.” – Andrew Stevenson, Advisor to VoLo Foundation
