Dry January - A Sobering thought for Investing?

Perhaps just like more and more  people you have started  the new year without alcohol, or are you are drinking a glass less.

Not to drink too much is not only healthy, but you may also have some money left over. As a total abstainer or moderate drinker, you can in principle still invest in drinks (or in 0.0 alcohol providers).

Below we have listed the ten most popular beverage shares among investing customers of BinckBank (based on invested capital).

The fact that Heineken is number one in this regard is unlikely to really surprise, but it is striking that a number of smaller American brewers also like investors.


  1. Heineken
  2. Inbev
  3. LVMH
  4. Lucas Bols
  5. Diageo
  6. Brown Forman
  7. Constellation Brands
  8. Carlsberg
  9. Molson
  10. Boston Beer

Drink water anyway
Perhaps you prefer to stick to water in the coming period. Obviously, this is  something you can invest in.

In recent years, more and more opportunities have been created to invest in this - often also in a sustainable way. Especially through a growing number of "blue" investment funds and ETFs.
Here too, we have looked at the water investments in which BinckBank's clients are currently investing.

This is currently the top 5 (based on invested capital)

  1. ASN Milieu en Waterfonds (Beleggingsfonds)
  2. iShares Global Water Fonds (Beleggingsfonds)
  3. Pictet Waterfonds (Beleggingsfonds)
  4. Robeco SAM Sustainable Water (Beleggingsfonds)
  5. Lycor World Water (ETF)

Investing in individual shares can easily be done through our platfom and for investment funds and ETFs the same. 

Investing involves risks. Your investment may be worth less.
