Boenning makes a success of 2018 London water summit
Published March 8th, 2018
Boenning & Scattergood’s 2018 Water Summit – held in London today – brought together senior management teams from eight listed US water companies with key European water investors in an intimate Westminster setting.
The event – now in its second year – is unique in the water calendar, and overcomes the historical challenge faced by US companies with meaningful European investor bases, which previously required them to set aside three or four days to travel to London, Geneva, Basel and Zurich to meet the portfolio managers of the main European water funds.
By facilitating one-on-one meetings between investors and companies in private rooms, the format of the event also addresses complaints that the open-plan format of similar conferences in the past discouraged the kind of frank dialogue and probing questions that are the mainstay of face time with company management.
Boenning’s highly regarded water team intends to make the event an annual occurrence.
