Investment Strategy

The MLP Equity strategy seeks a high level of total return and a growing cash yield. It offers low correlation to the broader equity market over the long term.

The strategy provides a portfolio consisting primarily of publicly traded partnerships and equities focused in the natural resources and energy infrastructure industries. Due to the nature of MLPs, tax-aware portfolio management is a very important aspect of our process for clients subject to taxes.
