Water ETFs Investing

Will water one day be more valuable than oil? Some investors believe water is a great long term trade because the resource will simply deplete with time. Lucky for you there are easy ways to invest in water right now through ETFs.

I have two water ETFs featured here that should quench your thirst just fine. Perhaps it is time you added water to your investment portfolio.

    Interesting play, I wonder what sort of future business opportunities there are in the water industry. Once supply<demand this would be the most crucial commodity on the planet. You can't live without it! :shock:
