    Thanks King and I appreciate that water itself is highly subject to political ownership. My view isn't to look for ownership of water per se or even delivery utilities which are often regulated. My thoughts are that finding, pumping, and transferring water from one place to another provide the best investing keyhole. That requires equipment and expertise, which is likely to come from the private sector, even if governments own and control the actual water itself. Desalination is an obvious technology. Fresh water is important but is only a very small part of total water demand. Essentially every organism on Earth needs water and we in turn need the plants, creatures etc, not to mention washing, industrial uses. Water can be filtered at the point of consumption as it is in many homes today and of course there is a market for such filters. However it is competitive and I just don't find it quite so interesting.

    Just a quick thanks for the replies and I'll check the suggestions out. I haven't heard of either of the funds. I don't mind investing in funds if they are focused and not just run for the benefit of the managers. I'm thinking that in 2-5 years water will be the new oil and water investments become overpriced. For once, just once in my life, I'd like to be in on the ground floor. http://www.sharescene.com/html/emoticons/tongue.gif

    Hello from a new Kiwi member. I've searched but cannot find a thread specific to the topic of water investment. It seems to me that this is a theme which is going to develop and gain traction soon. The world is rapidly draining fresh water and Australians are already familiar with the realities of that. Here is a link on the subject http://www.financialsense.com/editorials/d.../2006/0320.html I"ve spent some time on the net researching but it is difficult to sort out actual investments. Most hits are articles saying it is a good idea. In the absence of specific companies, PHO in the US looks attractive although it is a fund. http://quote.morningstar.com/ETFQuote.html...e&byrefresh=yes However Australia must have some emerging water related companies. Any thoughts? Cheers Winston
