The existence of liquid water on Earth is vital to the existence of life on Earth as we know it. Water plays an important role in the world economy. Approximately 70% of the freshwater used by humans goes to agriculture. Much of the long-distance trade of commodities (such as oil and natural gas) and manufactured products is transported by boats through seas, rivers, lakes, and canals.
Water is also a commodity exchanged in ETF trades. It offers a nice possibility to actively invest in ETF shares of commodities that are not so heavily tracked by investors.
