Portfolio diversification is an important risk mitigant. Most portfolio companies are power and midstream-related businesses such as energy transportation and storage, as well as utilities, transmission, distribution and other contracted energy assets. Investments are further diversified by geography, by end-users and customers and by counterparties. Power related investments span across various sources of energy, including natural gas, wind, solar, hydro and waste-to-energy.
