The investment seeks current income and capital appreciation. The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by primarily investing in the equity securities of the general partners of master limited partnerships ("MLPs") and the parent companies of general partners of MLPs (collectively, "GPs"). Under normal conditions, it will invest at least 80% of its net assets (plus borrowings for investment purposes) in securities of MLPs, GPs and other businesses that derive a majority of their revenue from energy infrastructure activities. The fund may invest in U.S. and foreign issuers of any market capitalization. It is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Solactive MLP & Energy Infrastructure Index ("underlying index"). The fund invests at least 80% of its total assets in the securities of the underlying index. It also invests at least 80% of its total assets in securities of master limited partnerships and energy infrastructure corporations. The fund's 80% investment policies are non-fundamental and require 60 days' prior written notice to shareholders before they can be changed. The underlying index tracks the performance of MLPs and energy infrastructure corporations. It is non-diversified.
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 fees, balance and savings information above are estimated numbers, based on the data FeeX had at the day of publication, but may not be accurate due to incomplete or erroneous data.

The best choice is based on a combined analysis of lowest fees and highest similarity to the original fund.


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.
