Pictet Water

A fund that invests in equities that benefit from the global growth in demand for clean water and related industries.

The fund looks to explicitly play one of the major themes within our positive impact portfolios, water, through companies operating in water supply, water technology and environmental services., The fund managers look for companies which generate at least 20% of their revenues from water related activities, have a strong business franchise and a compelling investment case.

The fund also applies an ESG overlay to avoid investing in companies involved in human right abuses or with poor corporate governance.

We like the fund as it gives us exposure to a fastly growing sector managed by an experienced team which has delivered strong returns versus peers.
