The fund is non-diversified.
The investment seeks to replicate, net of expenses, the Alerian MLP Index. The index measures the performance of 50 prominent energy master limited partnerships. It constituents earn the majority of their cash flow from the transportation, storage, processing or production of energy commodities. The Alerian MLP Index is calculated, maintained and published by S&P in consultation with the index sponsor.

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.
