S2 Ep 3: Climate Core Capital And Real Estate Investing for a Changing Climate

Most real estate investors are unprepared for how climate change will impact their business. Owen Woolcock is one step ahead, investing in markets that will stay resilient long into the future.

Real estate is often seen as a ‘safe investment’, but with increasing focus on how buildings are built and how they impact the environment, it’s time to recognize the impact of climate change on the future of this industry.

Nick and Owen, Partner at CCC, discuss why his company is built on investing in real estate that considers climate tech alongside climate change, how things like flood risk are drastically changing the landscape, and why global financial systems need to re-evaluate business models before it’s too late.

You’ll also hear Owen’s spicy take on which towns in the US are growing significantly, and why. Hint, if you’ve never considered living in Ann Arbor Michigan, now might be the time to take a look.
