MT Newswires Accesses ICE Climate Risk Score to Report on Climate Risk Analysis for Municipal Bonds

MT Newswires, a leading producer of real time global financial news, is accessing Intercontinental Exchange, Inc.’s (ICE) Physical Climate Risk Scores to report on climate risk analysis for municipal bond offerings in the United States.

ICE Physical Climate Risk Score ranks municipal bond offerings based on their exposure to floods, wildfire and hurricanes. For example, locations with a component Physical Climate Risk Score of 3.0 or higher out of 5.0 indicate high physical climate risk due to weather and fire-related events.

“Using ICE Physical Climate Risk Scores as part of MT Newswires’ climate risk analysis offers our clients a level of transparency in the municipal bond sector not previously available in the financial news industry,” said Brooks McFeely, CEO of MT Newswires.” “The ability to score climate risk is a useful tool to help investors in their assessment of a security’s near- and long-term potential. We see this news product as not only a benefit to municipal bond investors but also as a first step in quantifying how climate-related events can impact investments in a broad array of asset classes,” McFeely stated.

We’re excited to expand our relationship with MT Newswires to make Physical Climate Risk data more accessible,” said Larry Lawrence, Head of Sustainable Finance Products at ICE. “This collaboration is an important step in providing climate risk transparency across various fixed income asset classes, which can help identify opportunities to support municipalities’ adaptation and mitigation strategies.”

MT Newswires’ global network of journalists spans more than 25 countries and produces original, noise-free intra-day commentary and breaking news on a wide range of topics, including equities, fixed income, commodities, foreign exchange (FX), the global economy and more throughout North America, Europe and Asia.
