Why Harvest

Investing in the companies that fuel the American economy


Harvest’s investors have placed their trust and confidence in us. Our mission is to earn that privilege anew each day and to richly reward our clients for their faith. We will act with honesty and integrity above all else, and we will focus exclusively on the best interests of our clients.

Who We Are

We are Blackstone’s Publicly Traded MLP and Yield-Oriented Investment Platform. Harvest joined The Blackstone Group in 2017, and are based in suburban Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the fastest natural gas production growth state in the U.S. Since our founding in 2005, we have sought to capitalize on emergent opportunities in energy infrastructure master limited partnerships (MLPs) and U.S. energy markets for those institutions that entrust their capital with us. We do this via pooled investment vehicles and separately managed accounts, with the bulk of our AUM coming from institutional investors including public pension plans, corporate plans, endowments, and foundations.

Competitive Advantage

·   Passion

Spend just a few minutes with us and you will quickly realize that we absolutely love what we do. We are passionate about energy markets and our clients.

·   Experience

Our Portfolio Manager was the former head of MLP Research for Credit Suisse. This experience forms the bedrock of our rigorous bottom-up fundamental analysis and provides Harvest with unique insight into evaluating investments and formulating investment portfolios for our clients based on long standing industry and management team contacts. Our unique and extensive industry experience is married with best-in-breed research and proprietary modeling.

·   Client Satisfaction

We work closely with clients to understand their goals and to, where appropriate, build a customized portfolio that is designed to capture returns with a commensurate amount of risk. We are a “boutique” investment advisor catering exclusively to institutional investors. We understand the demands and needs of institutional investors and strive to ensure client satisfaction.

·   Managing Risk

As active managers seeking to generate Alpha, we strive to effectively manage risk. This is a core responsibility. We believe managing risk includes both controlling it and ensuring that the level and types of risk taken are in line with each client’s goals.

·   Diligence

Our track record is proven. However, we understand that each day is new and are committed to maintaining a diligent and repeatable process on behalf of those institutions that entrust us with their capital. 

Our Team

We have a deep team of energy infrastructure and investment professionals dedicated to building portfolios and servicing the needs of institutional investors.


MLPs & Energy

With our differentiated best-of-breed research and investment process, Harvest is a leader in MLP and energy infrastructure investing for institutional investors.


We Believe

· MLPs are misunderstood and mispriced

· MLPs offer investors best-in-class yield with sustainable long-term growth prospects

· A favorable macro energy infrastructure backdrop, coupled with inherent cost-of-capital advantages will enable MLPs to grow both organically and through acquisitions.

 · MLPs will grow from a little-known and somewhat misunderstood investment into a defined real asset sector allocation, thereby rewarding institutional investors who invested for the long haul.

Our Investment Objective

Harvest’s investment objective is to deliver to our 
clients both high yield and stable growth, through the disciplined application of our investment and trading strategies to MLP and energy infrastructure assets.

Our return objectives are to when possible generate positive, consistent, and stable risk-adjusted returns for our investors by exploiting market inefficiencies and the fundamental mispricing of  MLPs and energy infrastructure assets. We use our fundamental, value-oriented, bottom-up research, analysis, and industry knowledge to generate alpha. Overall, we believe that not all MLPs are equal and that risk analysis at a security level is often misunderstood in our sector. Through detailed fundamental analysis, we believe that we have the ability to build concentrated portfolios for our clients that are well diversified and bear less risk, based on a myriad of financial metrics.

Clean and Disciplined

We employ a clear, repeatable, and disciplined investment process that makes full use of our own proprietary qualitative models to identify both long and short term market opportunities.


Our models reflect the cumulative experience and wisdom of our investment staff.

Qualitative Approach

Our qualitative approach is then considered in tandem with knowledge developed from our strong relationships with MLP management teams and our proprietary quantitative analysis. This ultimately results in our security selections and portfolio weightings.

Research and Updates

We have distinguished ourselves with the volume and breadth of materials we have created within the MLP and energy infrastructure space.
