Global Water Fund

We rate all companies on environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics. We believe companies that better manage these ESG risks make better long-term investments.

Why Global Water Fund?

Clean, fresh water is essential for life. Yet less than 0.01% of the World's water is sustainable and accessible. We invest in companies trying to solve the Global water crisis.


Ethical investing in international equities to achieve above-average long-term risk-adjusted returns. The Fund invests directly in companies involved in the water industry that satisfy Pathfinder’s ethical investment criteria. Specifically, listed water companies covering activities such as water utilities, filtration, monitoring tech and the manufacture of pumps, pipes and irrigation equipment.

Past performance is no guarantee of future return. We encourage all investors to seek financial advice prior to making investment decisions.

Risk Level

This Fund is suited to an investor with a medium-high tolerance to risk and a minimum investment timeframe of 5+ years. 

The risk indicator is rated from 1 (low) to 7 (high). The rating reflects how much the value of the fund’s assets goes up and down. A higher risk generally means higher potential returns over time, but more ups and downs along the way.This risk indicator is not a guarantee of the fund’s future performance.
