The Case for Essential Services InfrastructureFor more than 40 years, Reaves Asset Management has maintained a steadfast focus on the infrastructure companies most essential to the functioning of a modern economy. We believe the stability of these franchises can lead to superior long-term, risk-adjusted returns due to the defensive characteristics of these companies and their ability to grow earnings and dividends through an economic cycle.

In this short investment brief, we explain the concept behind our essential service infrastructure approach, including:

  • Why defensive equity strategies may be needed more in today’s environment
  • The typical characteristics of the companies we seek
  • Examples of some of the companies and industries we invest in
