Geographic Arbitrage with Michael Ferrari

In commodities, the lowest cost producer or shipper is king. Decisions on asset placement are influenced by factors like cost, regulations, and geography. Today, with increasing volatility in weather and policies, choosing the right location is more important than ever. And in fact locations a few miles apart can have very different risk profiles – with those choosing wisely outstripping competitors as crucial times of disruption. And those risks are now being mapped down to the precise GPS coordinates. Our guest is someone who is leading the charge. Michael Ferrari is Chief Scientific Officer & Chief Investment Officer at AlphaGeo - AI-powered geospatial predictive location analytics platform that enables clients to assess location risks in the commodities sector and beyond.
