Strong Credit Ratings
All of our regulated businesses have credit ratings of A/A3 or better, as measured by Standard & Poor’s Investors Service and Moody’s, respectively.
When it's necessary to raise capital, our strong credit ratings help us do so on favorable terms.
Berkshire Hathaway Ownership
Our privately held ownership structure is a major source of financial strength and a competitive advantage. With no dividend requirement, we are able to reinvest 100 percent of net income back into our businesses to better serve customers and pursue growth opportunities. Berkshire Hathaway's long-term ownership perspective promotes stability and helps make us the buyer of choice in the eyes of certain sellers and regulators.
