1. Long-term growth drivers*

            There is no substitute for water, while water consumption keeps rising.

            Stricter global regulations are leading to massive investment (estimated more than USD11.7trn by 2030)

2. A USD 500 billion market centered around three sectors:

            Utilities (supply and distribution).

            Infrastructure (pipes, irrigation, etc.)

            Technology (purification, destination, etc.).

3. Innovative, value-generating companies

            The water sector is linked to many different industries and drives technological innovation with the arrival of newcomer.

            The market has undergone considerable restructuring which has seen the emergence of solid, sustainable companies.

*Sector growth does not necessarily entail the growth of companies in the which the fund is invested

What is the investment objective?

The fund invests in 35-50 publicly traded companies, providing value-added solutions to meet this vital and growing need for water.
