Invest in sustainable impact and quality

Companies with the optimal solutions in the water sector have a high sustainable impact and quality.

Good reasons to invest in water

Three percent of the world's water supply is freshwater. Consumption has more than tripled in the last 70 years. According to UNICEF, 2.2 billion people are without access to clean drinking water, and 800 million people have too little water for hygiene and cleaning. A problem that will be exacerbated by population growth and climate change. Experts predict that annual consumption will increase from 4,600 cubic kilometres to 6,000 cubic kilometres by 2050, and up to five billion people will not have access to clean drinking water. This is a fact that will benefit companies from the areas of water supply and water treatment in the long term. It is only logical that these companies offer opportunities for above-average growth, from which you as an investor can benefit. At the same time, most of them work sustainably and meet high social and environmental standards.

Our investment philosophy behind your investment success

To promote your investment success, we select companies with a solid business and sustainability strategy and a high sustainable impact, which successfully conduct business in the water sector, but are still relatively undervalued.

Investment process: How we find the best water equities for you

We use the bottom-up approach when selecting water-related stocks, which means we first analyse the companies before looking at their sector, their market and their region. We take into account various factors such as return on invested capital (ROIC). The return on invested capital shows how profitably the company uses your investment. To this end, the business model and fundamental data are assessed. Low debt, solid financial figures and a good management track record are just as important as the environmental and social impact. A relatively high return on capital, which promises an above-average return with below-average risk, makes the company in question a top candidate.
