Spatial finance is the integration of geospatial data and analysis into financial theory and practice. This report, published 14 July 2021, is the Spatial Finance Initiative’s first annual review of the state and trends in spatial finance.
The report examines the underlying technological advancements and market developments that make spatial finance an increasingly important proposition for financial institutions.
It presents both emerging and mature applications that are already available on the market and highlights future trends.
Spatial finance will transform the availability of information across the financial system and allow users to measure and manage risks and externalities without having to rely on patchy and often very inaccurate corporate reporting.
