Investing in water would seem like a good move to anyone familiar with global predictions of freshwater shortages in the years to come. However, the water industry is not wide open to profits according to a Reuters interview with Alex Miles of Kingfisher Capital, who previously managed a water hedgefund.
Miles says that because water is viewed as a public good, regulation of the industry makes it a poor choice for a narrow investment strategy.
Instead, he suggests a broader view of water security as a market force that will propel not only primary water industries, but also smart metering companies, pollution management companies and agricultural commodities.
