Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust consists of a portfolio of securities of companies that the Sponsor believes have a focus in at least one of the many categories that comprise the global water business. These categories include, but are not limited to, procurement, treatment, purification, filtration and distribution of water and wastewater treatment. The Sponsor selects securities for the Trust from within the global water business that it believes have the potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective. At least 80% of the Trust’s assets have a significant connection to the global water business in that the companies represented devote a portion of their operations to, or derive a material portion of their revenues from, water utilities, water treatment, water testing, water infrastructure and water resource management. As of the date of deposit, the Trust will invest at least 40% of its assets in the securities of non-U.S. companies located in at least three different countries, as defined by Russell Investments. The common stocks held by the Trust may include the common stocks of U.S. and non-U.S. companies. As a result of this strategy, the Trust is concentrated in the water utilities sector and the industrials sector and in securities issued by companies located in Europe.
The Sponsor selects global companies that it believes are core holdings of a well-diversified global water portfolio. To select the portfolio the Sponsor begins by identifying a universe of companies that it believes have a significant focus (based on revenues and/or earnings) in the global water business. The initial universe is defined through research of companies identified in various research reports, websites, company filings and financial databases as connected to the global water business. The Sponsor then identifies companies that are diversified across the many categories and countries of origin that comprise the global water business for inclusion in the portfolio through a qualitative analysis, which may be primarily based on, but not limited to, the following factors:
Under certain circumstances the Sponsor may limit the number of securities in the final portfolio based upon certain fundamental factors including, but not limited to, the following:
The portfolio primarily consists of securities of companies that devote a portion of their operations to, or derive a material portion of their revenues from, one of the following categories of the global water business:
