Signina Capital AG has a long standing experience in the Global water sector. Our principals teams executed their first investment in the water space in 1999. While first the emphasis was on utility based investments, water technology became a significant part of the water advisory business after 2001. Due to lack of reforms in the water sector and the limited availability of deals, Signina Capital AG views were mainly expressed via equities. While this has changed from 2004 onwards, mezzanine and project finance deals in developed countries became more and more important. Starting in 2004, we also advise on pre-IPO deals in Asia, privatization deals in the UK and a combination of infrastructure and utility corporate finance deals. From 2010 onwards Signina Capital AG has seen infrastructure as the best opportunity in the water sector. During those years we have also maintained an asset management licence, which we have withdrawn in early 2015 in order to fully concentrate on our Advisory. Signina has advised and invested approximately USD 1bn in the water space since 2004.
