The investment seeks long-term growth of capital while providing current income. Under normal circumstances, the fund's sub-adviser seeks to achieve the fund's stated objective by investing at least 80% of the fund's net assets (plus the amount of borrowings, if any, for investment purposes) in the equity and debt securities of energy master limited partnerships ("MLPs"), MLP-related entities, energy infrastructure companies and other issuers in the energy sector. The fund 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 Atlantic Trust Select MLP Index. The index seeks to capture returns that may be available from investing in a basket of direct or indirect interests in master limited partnerships (“MLPs”), limited liability companies (“LLCs”) and corporations (collectively, “MLP Interests”) that are selected pursuant to the Atlantic Trust Select MLP Strategy.

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.
