Sustainable Asset Management has submitted filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission to offer two funds, the SAM Sustainable Water Fund and the SAM Sustainable Climate Fund, and plans to introduce other sustainable funds in the near future.

The water fund is based on the Zurich-based firm’s belief that demographic changes, the aging of water infrastructure, pollution and climate change create opportunities for businesses to offer technologies, products and services to address these challenges, such as water treatment, recycling, purification, monitoring, analysis and irrigation.

The climate fund is based on the firm’s belief that companies can, again, offer technology, products and services to address climate change, such as power and energy efficiency.

“The broad topic of sustainability is attracting increasing global attention from both institutional and private investors,” said Reto Ringger, founder and CEO of Sustainable Asset Management.
