The water industry is becoming increasingly followed by the investment community. There are four major Exchange Traded Funds listed today that enable investors to invest in the water industry in the United States and overseas. A few water resource development firms are traded publicly. One seawater desalination firm is traded in the United States. A handful of regulated water utilities are publicly held. Capital markets may not be clairvoyant, but they can be informative about the consequences of trends and events in the industry.
Capital Markets provides information and analysis on developments concerning water exchange traded funds, water development firms and water utilities. We create performance charts and indexes for industry segments, as well as provide occasional commentary.
