Solving the world's water problems is proving to be one of the greatest
investment opportunities of our time. Already, world water supplies are
inadequate to meet demand, and the problem is going to get much worse in the
years ahead. The World Bank estimates that 1.1 billion people lack access to
safe drinking water and about 50 percent of the world's hospital beds are
populated by people who have contracted water-borne diseases. If present
consumption rates continue, in 25 years the world will be using 90 percent of
all available freshwater. To address the problem, trillions of dollars will
need to be invested in water infrastructure projects. And while the problems
are most acute in developing and rapidly growing economies, there are huge
water infrastructure needs in industrialized countries, as well. In the U.S.
alone, it's estimated that more than $1 trillion will be needed for water and
wastewater infrastructure projects. In Planet Water, water investment expert
Steven Hoffmann explains the dynamics driving the water crisis and identifies
investment opportunities in various sectors of the water industry. Hoffman
provides investors with the knowledge and insights they need to make informed
investments in water utilities, as well as companies providing water treatment
services; infrastructure services; water monitoring and analytics; and
desalination services. He also discusses mutual funds and ETFs that specialize
in water stocks. Investing in the water industry is certainly no pie-in-the-sky
idea. Over the past five years, many water stocks have exploded in value and
water stocks as a whole have outperformed the S&P 500 by a substantial amount.
In Planet Water, Hoffmann provides investors with everything they need to
profit from this fast-growing industry in the years ahead.
