Point Roberts, WA, United States, 2007/10/22 - Water sector continues to be driven by issues of global drought, the need for desalination and the increased concerns over the quality of water.
Water-Stocks.com, an investor and industry portal for the water sector, presents an investor podcast with Neil Berlant, Fund Manager of the PFW Water Fund discussing the performance of the recently launched PFW Water Fund and market factors that continue to drive growth in the water sector.
The PFW Water Fund, which was launched in June of this year, has beaten the market over this time period. Optimistic about the potential of the fund and the water business at large, Mr. Berlant states, “We are still in the very early stages of what is an exploding business and investment arena for the water industry.”
Driving the growth and performance of the sector and the PFW Water Fund according to Mr. Berlant is the fact that “we are looking at an ever increasing problem with availability of water and the quality of water on a worldwide scale. An enormous amount of the world is facing extreme drought conditions. These problems are not getting better and this has raised the level of attention on this sector. However, there is insufficient attention being placed on the requirements that exist already because of technology demands and the increasing demands that are brought about by drought conditions, mainly that we require greater degrees of purity, and greater amounts of processing to improve the available water supply to accommodate all of these applications. These problems are also sparking a growth in areas such as desalination.”
