Investment Philosophy

Reaves Asset Management believes that companies’ characteristics drive their investment outcomes. Reaves favors companies which possess some, or all, of the following characteristics:

  • Operate in businesses with high barriers to entry
  • Face limited competition / higher regulatory scrutiny
  • Consistent, sustainable cash flow generation
  • Profitable in both up and down economic cycles
  • Dividends viewed as an important component of capital allocation

Investment Process

The Reaves research process begins with a thorough qualitative assessment of business fundamentals, including market and regulatory structures, competitive environments, and barriers to entry. Analysis is focused on identifying high quality assets with the ability to generate durable and growing cash flow streams. Companies that fit these investment criteria are then scrutinized by management quality, capital allocation, and governance. Valuation analyses are performed in the context of industry, market, and idiosyncratic factors. Individual analyst recommendations are thoroughly vetted for merits and risk via internal peer review. Ultimately, after vigorous internal debate, the firm’s portfolio managers strive for a consensus-driven approach to security selection.
