JULY 9, 2020 – Hong Kong – Four Twenty Seven Wins WatersTechnology Asia Award for Best Alternative Data Provider.
The WatersTechnology Asia Award 2020 for Best Alternative Data Provider recognizes Four Twenty Seven’s innovation, accuracy and high standard in curating and deploying data for financial stakeholders. This regional award showcases vendors and end users with high quality solutions with global relevance that are also especially pertinent to Asia markets.
In 2020 Four Twenty Seven launched the first of its kind Physical Climate Risk Application, allowing investors to score any asset in the world on its exposure to floods, heat stress, hurricanes & typhoons, sea level rise and water stress. This came as financial regulators across the Asia-Pacific region have increasingly contributed to the global call for increased measurement and disclosure of climate risks in investment portfolios, encouraging financial actors to step up.
Committed to meeting the growing need of investors and other financial stakeholders in these markets, Four Twenty Seven opened a Tokyo office and hired a senior country representative, Toshi Matsumae, in October 2019. In June 2020 we announced a partnership with Derani Brewis of DB Funds Advisory, who leads our business development in Australia and New Zealand. We’ve seen growing demand for physical climate risk analytics from these markets and look forward to engaging more directly with stakeholders across the Asia-Pacific region to deliver our award-winning climate risk data and continue refining our analytics to meet their needs.
