MLPA Fund Description

MLPA tracks a market-cap-weighted index of US-listed midstream MLPs, and is structured as a C-corporation.

MLPA Factset Analytics Insight

MLPA offers exposure to midstream MLPs in a C-corporation ETF. Its structure—like that of all MLP ETPs—matters greatly. C-corporations pay taxes at the fund level unlike most ETFs. MLPA's issuer is required to include deferred tax expenses in the expense ratio, so the resulting headline fee can be quite high after a prolonged period of gains. However, C-corps retain the underlying MLPs’ tax deferred treatment of most distributions.The fund's index narrows in on midstream MLPs exclusively—entities focused on transportation, storage and processing. Note: MLPA switched indexes on March 30, 2015 from the Solactive MLP Composite Index to the Solactive MLP Infrastructure Index. The old Composite index contained some of the same names but was broader in scope, including exploration and production (upstream) and refining and marketing (downstream).

MLPA MSCI ESG Analytics Insight

Global X MLP ETF has an MSCI ESG Fund Rating of B based on a score of 1.64 out of 10. The MSCI ESG Fund Rating measures the resiliency of portfolios to long-term risks and opportunities arising from environmental, social, and governance factors. ESG Fund Ratings range from best (AAA) to worst (CCC). Highly rated funds consist of companies that tend to show strong and/or improving management of financially relevant environmental, social and governance issues. These companies may be more resilient to disruptions arising from ESG events.
