Leveraging impact investing
Water.org established WaterEquity to harness the power of impact investing to provide more funding for access to water and sanitation. By investing in water and sanitation enterprises, including microfinance institutions scaling small loans for water and sanitation, WaterEquity mobilizes capital to accelerate our impact — so we can reach more people, faster.
WaterEquity is the first asset manager exclusively focused on solving one of the most urgent issues of our time - the global water and sanitation crisis.
WaterEquity's funds invest in water and sanitation enterprises delivering access to safe water and sanitation to low-income families, while offering an attractive risk-return profile to investors.
More capital means more life-changing access to water and sanitation
Our solution is sustainable, and in partnership with water and sanitation enterprises around the world, we are reaching the people that need it most. These enterprises need more, affordable capital to scale water and sanitation solutions to meet demand. WaterEquity provides that capital.
Here’s how it works:
- Accredited investors invest in WaterEquity funds.
- WaterEquity funds deploy capital to enterprises, including microfinance institutions, increasing access to water and sanitation solutions for people in need.
- The investor can potentially receive a financial return, or re-invest to further their social impact.
- The result is more people get access to safe water and sanitation, turning a life of poverty into a life of possibility.
