Christian Magoon, ETF expert and Publisher of GoldETFs.biz and IndiaETFs.com, has joined the effort to promote the United Nation's World Water Day on March 22nd by highlighting water ETFs in an article on the Motley Fool. Investing in companies that focus on the infrastructure, equipment, services and chemicals involved in sustaining the world's supply of freshwater is just one way to support the mission of World Water Day. Investing in water related companies is made easier by the four water ETFs listed in the United States. These ETFs include:
- The First Trust ISE Water Index ETF (FIW)
- The Guggenheim S&P Global Water ETF (CGW)
- The PowerShares Water Resources ETF (PHO)
- The PowerShares Global Water ETF (PHO)
"Water is the only commodity on Earth of which there is no replacement," said Christian Magoon CEO of Magoon Capital. "A growing industry and investment opportunity is found in the companies in the water sector. Many of these companies are improving the delivery, quality and treatment of freshwater around the world which aligns with World Water Day's mission. Water ETF investors can help to generate significant social impact along with the potential for investment gains."
There are currently over $1.2 billion dollars invested in water focused ETFs in the United States. The First Trust ISE Water Index ETF (FIW) has shown superior performance over the last four years, according to data compiled in Magoon's article.
