EMLP Fund Description

EMLP is an actively managed fund that invests in North American energy infrastructure MLPs and LLCs.

EMLP Factset Analytics Insight

EMLP is one of the very few actively-managed ETPs in the MLP segment. While AMLP others are structured as C-corporations to circumvent the rule that open-ended funds can't hold more than 25% of their portfolios in MLPs, EMLP is structured as a traditional 1940 Act fund. To maintain that structure, the issuer has extended the universe to include pipelines and utilities structured as C-corporations, Canadian firms that used to be royalty trusts, and unique institutional MLP shares issued by MLP affiliates. It's therefore not a pure MLP play, and skews quite a bit from our benchmark with a complex portfolio: some underlying MLPs make distributions in shares rather than cash, which may explain the fund's lower yield. The fund sees robust daily volume in trading with narrow spreads, and underlying liquidity is sufficient. EMLP charges a high fee, but is in line with other actively-managed funds.
