What are MLPs?

Over the last 35 years, Master Limited Partnerships - commonly referred to as MLPs – have become a popular investment vehicle in the energy space. These publicly traded limited partnerships are attractive to investors because they tend to generate strong returns, have favorable tax implications and are often shielded from inflation. Over the years, Congress has enacted legislation to stipulate qualifying sources of income for MLPs. Today, most MLPs are in the energy industry – primarily in the midstream sector. However, some MLPs exist in the upstream and downstream space as well.
