† About Miller/Howard

† Miller/Howard Investments is an investment management firm rooted in a core philosophy that internal compounding, through high current dividends and growth of dividends, is central to building wealth over time. As an outgrowth of this philosophy, the firm has a strong emphasis on energy and infrastructure, including MLPs, Utilities, and direct energy producers---though the firm's various strategies cover most sectors and may include selected higher-growth securities. Portfolio management started in 1991 (after 6 years as an independently originated research boutique serving major institutions), following a landmark study conducted by Lowell Miller that clarified the risk-adjusted return potential of financially strong companies serving the economy's basic needs. The company focuses on equities with defensive business models, strong recurring revenues, underappreciated growth opportunities, and a commitment to returning shareholder capital. As of June 30, 2013, the firm managed $5.7B in institutional and individual client assets.
