Water Infrastructure

Decades of under-investment have left a legacy of decaying water infrastructure. Due to leaks and generally ailing water infrastructure, around 73 billion hectolitres are lost in drinking water pipes every year in the USA alone. Countries around the world are suffering from ailing water infrastructure, as in some countries around 30% of drinking water is often lost in the pipes due to leaks. This is associated with enormous additional costs, which can, however, be reduced sustainably through an intact water infrastructure.

Water Desalination

In the long run, the technology of seawater desalination can completely solve the global drinking water scarcity. Currently, water desalination is simply too expensive and complex, especially for underdeveloped countries, which is why the technology has not yet caught on. However, the potential of water desalination is enormous, but it still needs further development until it is suitable for the mass.

USA

There are an estimated 50 000 water utilities and 15 000 wastewater operators in the US, many of them small and operating at or near a loss. Thus, consolidation is quite essential for the fragmented water industry and offers the listed water suppliers great potential for growth.

England

If you want to invest in British water utilities, keep an eye on the political development in London. The leftist Labour Party wants to renationalise British water utilities and bring it back in public hands. The Tories (Conservative Party) instead privatised the water system in 1989 under Margaret Thatcher, and they want to keep it privatised because “the nationalisation of the water industry in England would be bad for customers, bad for the environment and bad for the economy.“ However, British water utilities do not have to expect regulatory headwinds by Ofwat for the next couple of years. The political headwinds from nationalisation risk has abated in 2021 and do not show any signs of reappearing right now.

Japan

Brazil

Investments in Brazilian water suppliers go along with two current risks: the political instability in Brazil and the weakening Brazilian currency. The Brazilian government has a stake in the water suppliers through the federal states, which means that politically intentional intervention is possible at any time. The depreciating Brazilian Real is weakening the financial stability of the water utilities due to their foreign currency debts. However, the Brazilian water market has a huge potential. According to Financial Times, half the population lack proper sewage services, 35m struggle without clean drinking water in their homes and 100m people have no access to mains drainage.

Why you should consider Water Stocks as part of your long term Investment Strategy

The stock market is booming. More and more private individuals want to be part of the capital markets and hope for lucrative investments. Due to the growing number of so-called neo brokers, the path to the stock exchange is quickly made – finding really sustainable and profitable investment opportunities, however, seems tedious and somehow not realistic due to overvalued stock markets and a flood of information.

Water is certainly not the only attractive and promising investment topic that medium to long-term investors should consider. However, as of today, water stocks should definitely be part of your long-term investment strategy. The reasons for investing in water on the stock exchange are diverse, well-founded and reasonably predictable. The crucial argument in favour of water stocks is the fact that the demand for water and wastewater services is unsurprisingly stable. Above all, however, the demand for water is relatively independent of the economic situation and the overall business activity. Water stocks offer the potential for long-term capital appreciation and stable dividend payments – the two cornerstones of an equity investment.
