Is Your Fund Serious About Climate? Show Me Your Scientists.

The grab for scientific talent is underway across the financial sector.

  • Climate-focused funds “are coming to the realization that this is a mega-scale problem that requires deep understanding of the science behind it,” says Stephan Nicoleau of FullCycle Capital Partners. He says the climate-solutions fund draws on hundreds of scientists, technologists and engineers across its ecosystem.

  • The boomlet in climate-science expertise started in the risk-driven insurance industry, which latched onto climate expertise to model weather risk. VCs, who have long valued engineering chops, are collecting talent in climate analytics, environmental engineering and organic chemistry as the contours of climate challenges, and opportunities, come into focus.
