    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
