PHO Fund Description

The PowerShares Water Resource Portfolio tracks a modified liquidity-weighted index of US-listed companies that create products to conserve and purify water.

PHO Factset Analytics Insight

Despite its narrow geographic focus (the fund only holds US listings), PHO is the most popular water-themed fund on the market, and also the most liquid. As one would expect, its US-centric, modified liquidity-weighted basket looks very different from our global benchmark. PHO tilts small, and makes a few sector bets, chief among them a bias to industrials and an underweight to utilities. Investors who want US-only exposure in this segment will be well-served, but those who don't should look elsewhere. The fund trades in decent volumes, and spreads are small. Underlying liquidity is excellent. PHO charges a reasonable fee for a niche fund, and tracking is pretty tight.
