      MLPS vs. ETF Alternatives
      MLPS Description
      The UBS ETRACS 1xMonthly Short Alerian MLP Infrastructure Total Return Index is designed to provide a short exposure to the MLP Infrastructure market by tracking the inverse performance of the Alerian MLP Infrastructure Total Return Index, plus a fixed income return based on a hypothetical 91-day Treasury Bill portfolio, less investor fees. The Alerian MLP Infrastructure Total Return Index, comprised of 25 energy infrastructure Master Limited Partnerships, is a liquid, midstream-focused subset of the Alerian MLP Index (NYSE: AMZ). The Underlying Index, whose constituents generally earn the majority of their cash flow from the transportation and storage of energy commodities, provides investors with a benchmark for the infrastructure component of this emerging asset class. The Underlying Index is calculated using a capped, float-adjusted, capitalization-weighted methodology that results in greater diversification versus a pure market capitalization-weighted index.
