    The Master limited partnerships and their equity in the U.S. energy infrastructure are gaining constant popularity among the potential investors. All the small companies evolved in the dispersion and safekeeping of energy forms; share their assets in the form of a single financial vehicle, the MLP ETF. Since there is constant increase in the demand for the fuel from different and new emerging areas of development there is a strong reason for the growing affinity for MLP ETFs.

    Comprising of 30 MLP's all associated and involved in the processing and transportation of energy products such as oil & gas, these portfolios give the investor a good exposure to its diversification. These master limited partnership are generally publically traded partnerships, and do not require for taxes to be paid at entity levels.

    Energy supply has to be constantly supplied to the infrastructure of the economy, for this a vast network provision is required to supply the natural resources throughout the country. This process requires the storage, processing and transportation of gas, oil or any other type of natural energy fuel. North America's increasing demand for the energy fuel requires the constant expansion of the networking pipes that transport the fuel to the respective areas. This particular mlp invest belongs to the investments put in the U.S. energy infrastructure, so the increase in the demands for the natural fuels is bound to increase the opportunities for further investment in the mlp mutual fund. This shows the high prospects for the investors willing to invest in the U.S. energy infrastructure.

    The mlp mutual fund practically shares no correlation with S & P indices. This fund portrays itself as the safest security for those investors which are looking for an equity that would be able to issue regular incomes without being volatile to the unfavorable market scenarios. The effect of prices does not have a result on the fund value and its returns, which is the most special feature of the ETF.

    But it is important to know that this ETF is the third fund structured as a C-corporation. This means that the shareholders are subjected to double taxation, firstly on the capital gains and secondly on the income received on the fund, but the ETF exploits the SEC regulations.

    During the high inflation periods this ETF is not much affected due to the hedges inbuilt in its structure. What is important is that the investors can treat K1s but that too only on a reporting basis. They are eligible for the quarterly income pay outs. The profit is qualified for the 401K investments. Energy transportation and infrastructure is that segment of the economy that gives higher yields on low risk criteria. This is the solid reason for the gaining popularity for this particular fund. Off recently Global X is offering a brand new ETF in this sector as this sector shows its magnitude in the future as well. The top five assets of the Fund comprise of 27.93% of the total assets.

    Global X MLP ETF [MLPA] charges the issuers an annual management fee of 0.45. The Underlying Index significantly tracks the overall performance of the United States master limited partnership (NYSE:MLP) asset class.
