UTES Fund Description

The Reaves Utilities ETF is an actively managed ETF that holds US-listed utility stocks. UTES' managers aim to outperform the sector by selecting and weighting stocks based on fundamental, growth and risk metrics.

UTES Factset Analytics Insight

UTES, launched in September 2015, is the first and only ETF offering active exposure to utility stocks. Active exposure is rare in equity ETFs and especially so among sector funds. The managers will use fundamental, growth, and risk-based metrics looking to outperform the broader sector from a total return perspective. Examples of the metrics include capital structure, historical earnings growth and share price volatility. Dividends are a factor too, but the fund does not appear to be yield-focused despite its dividend-heavy sector. UTES’ fee is in line with its tiny peer group of active sector ETFs, but much higher than peer market-cap-weighted ETFs like VPU and XLU. Reaves Asset Management manages the portfolio day to day—the firm is new to ETFs but runs utilities-oriented mutual funds and SMAs.
