Investment Philosophy

It is the rate of change in the fundamental outlook, not the absolute level of yield, that drives long-term performance of energy infrastructure equities. The fundamental outlook for energy infrastructure is dependent on prevailing economics across the Energy value chain, and a company’s ability to exploit those economics to enhance shareholder value. We seek to invest in those companies where the fundamental outlook is undervalued by the market to generate alpha and enhance our investor’s returns.

We Believe In

Reduce Inefficiencies

Inefficiencies result in mispriced total return opportunities

Exploit Economics

A partnership’s ability to exploit industry economics is the key to driving the fundamental outlook

Evaluate Infrastructure

Evaluating energy infrastructure equities through the lens of a growth investor allows us to generate material long-term alpha

Less Volatility

Our growth focus produces less volatility than a yield-focused strategy

Process and Portfolio Construction

We utilize bottoms-up, fundamental research, combined with deep expertise in the Energy sector across the investment team, to identify our investment opportunities. Our unique growth process is designed to produce a high-conviction portfolio of 25-35 holdings that exhibit a total return profile higher than the peer group. We employ institutional levels of risk control to ensure our portfolio delivers those returns at the optimized risk level.
