WaterEquity is the first-ever impact investment manager dedicated to ending the global water crisis, with an exclusive focus on raising and deploying capital to financial institutions and water and sanitation enterprises in emerging markets.
How we invest and build
We invest in financial institutions and enterprises that can significantly expand access to safe water and sanitation among people living in poverty.
We target investments in enterprises that have significant capacity for scale, a strong financial track record, and a deep reach into underserved communities.
Evaluate Risk and Returns
We mitigate risk by spreading assets over multiple geographies, business models, and market segments.
We thoroughly evaluate and consider social as well as financial risk and returns in our investment decision making.
We invest in enterprises that support the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 6 and are committed to sustainable and equitable environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices.
We manage our portfolio’s impact with the same rigor as our financial performance and establish impact targets for each investment.
We monitor our investments using both IRIS-aligned metrics as well as surveys of the families who benefit from safe water and sanitation.
