CFA Society Water Impact on Investing Event – Chicago – September 2017

While roughly 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, only about 1 percent is readily accessible freshwater, much of which is in snow and glaciers.

The CFA Water Impact event will take place in Chicago on the 26th of September.

While roughly 71 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water, only about 1 percent is readily accessible freshwater, much of which is in snow and glaciers. Many parts of the world, and even parts of the United States, have experienced prolonged water shortages, which impact economic growth and can even lead to conflict. From the financial analyst’s standpoint, how should water be assessed as a risk factor and what steps can be taken to hedge against supply shortages?

  • Examine water as a resource and quantify water intensity in industrial production
  • Assess the current and potential breadth of water scarcity and its implications
  • Evaluate the impact of water scarcity on geopolitical and economic factors
  • Analyze water as a risk factor in securities analysis and discuss potential investment implications and risk mitigation approaches

Lauren Smart – Managing Director of Trucost, part of S&P Dow Jones Indices will be speaking at this event. Also attending from Trucost will be Mona Maqvi – Account Director Financial Institutions.
