Miller/Howard’s New Fund To Target DB Plans

Oct 5 2006 | 2:55pm ET

Woodstock, N.Y.-based boutique Miller/Howard Investments is set to begin a marketing push next year for its new hedge fund targeting the defined-benefit community. The firm hopes to raise $150 million by the end of next year for the currently $6 million Absolute Value Partners fund, according to Executive Vice President Steve Chun.

The firm’s long-time strategy has been to focus on dividend-paying stocks, and that won’t change with the hedge fund, a strategy that may appeal to DB funds.

“That core portfolio is going to be a solid group of conservative, dividend-focused strategies,” Chun says, to which Miller/Howard will add market hedges—with a 100% leverage limit—to add alpha.

The fund launched on March 1 with its initial investors. Chun says that its returns so far are “in line” with other long/short strategies.
