Description
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the Alerian Natural Gas MLP Index. The index is an equal-weighted composite of the 15 largest natural gas infrastructure Master Limited Partnerships by market capitalization. The index, whose constituents earn the majority of their cash flow from the transportation, storage, and processing of natural gas and natural gas liquids, provides investors with a benchmark for the infrastructure component of the natural gas industry.
The investment seeks investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Solactive MLP Infrastructure Index ("underlying index"). The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in the securities of the underlying index. Moreover, at least 80% of the fund's net assets will be invested in securities that have economic characteristics of the Master Limited Partnership ("MLP") asset class. The underlying index is intended to give investors a means of tracking the performance of the energy infrastructure MLP asset class in the United States. The fund is non-diversified.

Similarity

FeeX's similarity algorithm analyzes over 15 investment characteristics like investment category, asset allocation, strategy, geographical allocation and more. FeeX gives each its own weight and calculates the similarity of any two investments based on a scale of 0 to 100%. Funds with a similarity ranking of 85% and higher are considered "similar".

Yes, funds and ETFs charge fees

Deep within every fund you own lies a hidden fee called expense ratio. It takes away a set % of your savings each and every year. It can often be easily reduced by switching to similar investments with lower expense ratios.
