Building on our long history
Duff & Phelps was founded as a fundamental research firm analyzing the utility sector, which is the birthplace of many of today’s “midstream” assets held in master limited partnerships (MLPs). We hold long-term concentrated portfolios of MLPs with geographic footprints in high-quality basins of the U.S. Our strategies focus on midstream properties—those in the distribution portion of the energy chain.
Investing in energy and MLPs provides the opportunity to benefit from:
Strong Cash Flows
Attractive income backed by long term contracts provide durable cash flows to investors.
MLP distributions may be tax-deferred or subject to other preferential tax treatment.
The sector historically has offered strong growth potential and attractive performance.
