Our indexes seek to capture and distill all we have learned over nearly a quarter century of active management of dividend and energy infrastructure companies. Our strategic, rules-based indexes are created to enhance current passive approaches to asset allocation. Miller/Howard currently has two indexes:
Miller/Howard MLP Fundamental Index®*
The Miller/Howard MLP Fundamental Index® is a composite of 25 energy master limited partnerships (MLPs) that uses modified equal weighting based on certain quantitative fundamental factors of publicly traded MLPs. The index seeks to go beyond cap-weighted MLP exposure, focusing on fundamental factors that we've identified as potential key drivers of total return performance.
Miller/Howard Strategic Dividend Index
The Miller/Howard Strategic Dividend Index seeks to capture and distill all we have learned over nearly a quarter century of active management of dividend companies. Our strategic, rules-based index is created to enhance current passive approaches to asset allocation, going beyond market exposure by applying persistent, strategic factors we have observed and confirmed through our active management. We seek to find and retain the "good," as opposed to cap-weighted indexes, which in our view hold the good, the bad, and the ugly—by their very nature and definition.
