Talking heads – Health and climate concerns drive water segment demand

Justin Winter

By JUSTIN WINTER, DANIEL MORRIS 22.03.2022

In this article:

    Investing in water-related stocks means tapping into a multi-decade opportunity for growth and innovation. Demand in this segment stretches across the breadth of the economy – from tackling ageing water infrastructure to ensuring healthy drinking water and efficient waste water treatment.  

    Listen to senior portfolio manager of water strategies Justin Winter and chief market strategist, Daniel Morris, as they discuss this billion-dollar market in which advanced technology is becoming ever more prominent. It ranges from – smart – meters and pumps to flood warning sensors, and from ultrapure ‘tech water’ to testing for micro-plastics, PFAS ‘forever chemicals’ and virus traces.

    Formerly known as ‘Market weekly’, Talking heads brings investors the in-depth insights on topics that really matter to them, analysis of the world and markets through the lens of sustainability and more great conversations with investment experts.

The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay. Past performance is no guarantee for future returns. Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher-than-average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions). Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
