REACH is a global research programme to improve water security for the poor by delivering world-class science that transforms policy and practice.


Stranded assets & transition finance

We use finance to enable the transition to a sustainable future in the real economy and navigate the risk of stranded assets. We pioneered the term stranded assets – assets that are worth less than expected due to changes associated with the transition to a low-carbon economy – and continue to research the subject.


Machine learning & data science

Enabling technologies, such as distributed ledgers and smart contracts, can enable financial transactions and behaviours that support the transition to sustainability. Data science and AI can help the financial system secure much more accurate, consistent, and timely data to inform decision-making, risk pricing, and capital allocation.


Climate & environmental analytics

The adoption of climate and environmental analytics can ensure that climate and environmental factors can be properly measured, priced, and managed by individual financial institutions and across the financial system.


Spatial finance

We use cutting-edge geospatial data and analysis to understand environment-related risks, impacts, and opportunities for financial assets.


Income protection gap

Our Income Protection Gap (IPG) project investigates the drivers of under-protection in insurance, where a household is dependent on replacement income during an unplanned interruption to earnings.
