BNP Paribas Asset Management

On the occasion of World Water Day, BNP Paribas Investment Partners is pleased to announce that its Aqua funds have set a record with almost 2 billion euros in assets under management.


The theme of this year’s World Water Day is “wastewater”. In many of the world’s regions, water is becoming scarcer due to the intensive use made of it and to global warming. In these regions, water treatment and recycling plants are becoming crucial. Technical solutions already exist, such as bacterial purification, ultraviolet or ozone treatment, and nano-filtration. Various experiments of this type have been successfully conducted in Singapore and Israel, for example. And BNP Paribas IP’s Aqua funds invest precisely in those companies that find and implement these technical solutions for treating and recycling water worldwide.

They also invest in companies that help to equip local governments with full water-adduction systems or to renovate them when they wear out.
