Diversification Choices in Oil & Gas – 18 Sponsors to Compare

There are 18 sponsors of oil and gas programs offered through the independent broker dealer (IBD) channel. No two firms are alike, providing IBDs and their advisors many options.

Well there are many factors broker dealers and financial advisors must consider when evaluating energy direct investments, an important consideration is geography.

Location matters because of varying state policies, transportation availability, climate changes, workforce availability and more. Sponsors know this and many diversify their business interests across multiple states.

IBDs and advisors should consider diversification as well, while being mindful of overlapping interests across several sponsors.

As an informational guide, The DI Wire has constructed the chart below, which provides each energy sponsor with their geographical locations and basin or play focus, if applicable. The chart in this article only provides a sample of the energy sponsors offering direct investments through IBDs.
