CGW Fund Description

The PowerShares S&P Global Water ETF aims to track a market-cap-weighted index of global water utilities, infrastructure and water equipment & materials companies.

CGW Factset Analytics Insight

CGW offers comprehensive coverage of the global water segment in an efficient wrapper. Sector and size biases are nil as the fund happens to track the same index we've chosen as our benchmark. Investors should keep in mind that the global water market is very concentrated, so CGW's performance is driven by its biggest holdings—about half of its assets are invested in the top 10 holdings alone. Liquidity is decent and spreads are manageable for retail traders, while underlying liquidity is deep enough that larger traders should be able to get decent execution on block trades. CGW's exposure to global water doesn't come cheap, but the fund recovers a large share of its fee via securities lending and overall tracks its index quite well, so holding costs should be lower than advertised.
