Reaves Utilities ETF to Switch to NYSE Listing

UTES is an actively managed fund that tracks the utility sector, which includes utilities companies that are involved with products, services or equipment for the generation or distribution of electricity, gas or water.

The utilities sector has been among the best performing investments this year after investors plunged into the defensive play in search of yield and safety in an environment of historically low yields, slow growth and geopolitical uncertainty.
