    Why Invest

    • Opportunistically invests across the entire energy "value chain" seeking the best balance of reward and risk
    • Concentrated, actively managed portfolio of 25-40 companies
    • In-depth, rigorous "boots-on-the-ground" research led by managers with decades of combined energy investing experience

    Investment Approach

    The Hennessy BP Energy Fund invests across the full spectrum of the energy supply/demand value chain, including upstream, midstream, and downstream energy companies, as well as energy end-users. The Fund's Portfolio Managers have the flexibility to opportunistically move up and down this energy value chain, overweighting sectors they believe will generate the best balance of reward and risk.

    The Portfolio Managers employ a fundamental, “boots-on-the-ground” research-intensive investment process to select holdings, focusing on four key steps:

    - Develop commodity forecasts and key sector investment themes

    - Identify primary beneficiaries of investment themes

    - Value companies on both a relative and absolute basis to uncover potential stock mispricing opportunities

    - Size position based on conviction, expected return, volatility, and liquidity

    Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted.

    Morningstar Proprietary Ratings reflect risk-adjusted performance as of 3/31/19. The Morningstar Rating for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. The fund received 3 stars for the three-year and 4 stars for the five-year periods ended 3/31/19 among 91 and 79 Equity Energy Funds, respectively. Each share class is counted as a fraction of one fund within this scale and rated separately, which may cause slight variations in distribution percentage.

    The S&P 500® Energy Index is an index that comprises those companies included in the S&P 500® that are classified as members of the GICS energy sector. The S&P 500® Index is an unmanaged index commonly used to measure the performance of U.S. stocks. One cannot invest directly in an index.

    The performance shown for periods on or prior to 10/26/18 is that of the predecessor BP Capital TwinLine Energy Fund.

    Active share was calculated versus the Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE), which differs from the Fund's primary benchmark. References to other investment products should not be interpreted as an offer of these securities.
