Why Energy Infrastructure MLPs?

Thematically, MLPs represent an investment in the build-out of US energy infrastructure over the next few decades. MLPs own, operate, and build energy infrastructure assets such as pipelines, storage facilities, and processing plants.

  • Energy renaissance drives growth - Billions of investment dollars are required for infrastructure to keep pace with the boom in domestic production of natural gas and oil.
  • Toll-road business models - MLPs possess regional monopoly footprints and benefit from inflation-hedged contracts and inelastic energy demand.
  • Income potential - MLPs pay out the majority of their operating cash flow as quarterly dividends.*

*The current 25 constituents all pay quarterly distributions.
