Our First Priority Is You!

Miller/Howard wants to help you navigate through rough markets.

Our first priority at Miller/Howard is making sure that we are in a position to steward your assets through all markets, including this one. We have navigated challenging markets for 30 years, and we will navigate this one. Past challenges have prepared us from an operational and technological standpoint to continue to serve our clients seamlessly while doing our part to social distance. To that end, our portfolio managers have been working diligently to navigate choppy markets, our marketing team is grounded and available for client calls, and our traders and staff are prepared to continue to care for the assets you have entrusted to us without interruption.  We are doing our best to be part of the solution, without compromising client care or fiduciary responsibility.

At its core though, this is a human event. We know that this has an emotional and economic impact on you and your clients. We have designed our strategies in an effort to endure challenging economic times, and our portfolios were already positioned in healthy companies and those providing essential services with enduring business models. Many of the companies that we own are businesses that you write checks to every month; companies that, themselves, have endured and thrived during other challenging times.

Near-term price volatility is unavoidable, but what we seek to deliver is a stable income stream from dividends. Every market cycle will have unanticipated events that need to be evaluated. Portfolio changes will be made when warranted. What is unchanging is our commitment to our clients.

We are here to serve you, and we are committed to doing the best work we can to protect income. Please don’t hesitate to reach out.

We earnestly hope that you and your family stay healthy.

Be well,
The Miller/Howard Team
