Analyst Report

MLPI offers exposure to an index designed to invest in the the infrastructure component of the Master Limited Partnership asset class. MLPs have attracted significant interest for two primary reasons: (1) required quarterly distributions provide a steady stream of current income, and (2) because they are partnerships, MLPs avoid corporate income taxes at both the federal and state level?the tax liability is passed through to the individual partners. By generating at least 90% of income from natural resource-based activities such as transportation and storage, an entity can qualify as an MLP and not be taxed as a corporation. So the IRS treats shareholders of an MLP as partners, making the MLP itself a pass-through entity. That means that taxes are avoided at the corporate level, and investors avoid the double taxation of income. Rather than making an investment in companies whose revenues are directly exposed to commodity prices, MLPI will be a good investment choice for those looking for specific exposure to the infrastructure segment of this booming asset class.
