WaterEquity is the first-ever asset manager exclusively focused on solving the global water crisis.

How we invest and build

Target Growth

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 financial institutions and water and sanitation 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.

Set Standards

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.

Measure Success

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.

Through impact investing, we are building a market between investors and high-growth enterprises serving the water and sanitation needs of people living in poverty.
