Point Roberts, WA, United States, 2007/10/26 - The growing global Water crisis and Investment opportunity; Perspectives and Insight into the U.S., China and Middle East’s Water infrastructure problems and solutions.
Investorideas.com and its Water-stocks.com Podcast series “Investing in Water” present an in-depth interview with Mr. Bill Brennan, President & Managing Partner of Aqua Terra Asset Management and Senior Portfolio Manager of the Praetor Global Water Fund. Mr. Brennan discusses the performance of the Kinetics Water Infrastructure Fund and provides insight into the global water infrastructure crisis and investment opportunity.
According to Mr. Brennan the Kinetics Water Infrastructure Fund has done well compared to the overall market performance, relative to the Indices, since the July 2nd launch and is currently up 3%.
In the Podcast Mr. Brennan discusses water infrastructure spending in the next 20 years in the US, China and Middle East and provides insight into short tem and long-term investing opportunities. “An investment of $1- $2 Trillion will be needed to fully modernize the global water systems within the next 20 years. In China alone, in the next 18 months we expect China to double its spending on water infrastructure.”
Some additional alarming comments from Mr. Brennan to take note of as both investors and consumers:
“There is 1.5 million miles of pipe for drinking water and waste water that exists in the US and at least half if not more has passed its useful life.”
“We expect water bills to go up by a factor of 5-10 times over the next 10 years just to meet the needs of the rebuilding of the water infrastructure in the United States. So that $50 water utility bill you are now paying could grow to $250 to $500 based on where you live geographically.”
On the upside to potential investors, he sees a great investment theme that is sustainable on a long-term basis. To sum it up- “ You can go without cable, survive without a land line coming into your home but if water does not come into your facility your property value goes to zero as it becomes uninhabitable”.
