Jupiter Intelligence has achieved rapid growth since its launch five years ago and is now providing analytics on the impact of climate change to insurers, governments, and corporations worldwide.

CEO and Co-founder Rich Sorkin joins Matthew to discuss how his experience of extreme weather events motivated him to launch the company.

Their conversation covers the products and services Jupiter offers, how clients are using its data, and why it is vital that insurers track the long-term impacts and risks they face from climate change.

Talking points include:

  • Using data to understand physical and financial portfolio risk
  • Duration mismatch - why planning for the future matters
  • Regulation and reporting - the impacts for insurance
  • The lessons insurance can learn from banking
  • Scaling at speed - building the right team and products

Jupiter Intelligence was featured in the InsTech London report, Climate Change Risk Regulation and Measurement: 22 companies to know, which is available as a free download.
