OUR ESG INVESTING ADVANCEMENTS
Four Twenty Seven Climate Data Enhancement
During 2018, Breckinridge partnered with Four Twenty Seven, a company
that provides science-driven risk analytics to investors, corporations and
governments. This partnership enabled us to integrate an assessment of
physical climate risk related to tropical cyclones, sea level rise, extreme
rainfall and heat stress in order to more thoughtfully evaluate climate
risks for municipal issuers.
