Planetrics has been acquired by McKinsey & Company

The shareholders of Planetrics Ltd. a sister company to Vivid Economics Ltd., have sold the business to McKinsey & Company.

Planetrics is a specialist technology business providing climate change scenario analysis to the financial services industry. It is a leader in physical and transition risk and opportunity modelling. The Planetrics model enables leading banks, insurors, asset owners and asset managers to incorporate climate risks into their strategy and portfolio management, risk management, stress testing and reporting activities.

McKinsey & Company is a leading global consultancy firm founded in 1926. This deal strengthens McKinsey’s ability to advise its client base on how to assess and address their environmental risks and how they can manage assets from an environmental standpoint. With record inflows into environmentally focused stocks and a global push away from carbon and towards green energy, environmental concerns are increasingly seen as one of the core areas of focus in advising companies on their financial sustainability.

Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised Planetrics on the sale of the business.
