New ETF to track master limited partnerships

New ETF to track master limited partnerships

A new exchange-traded fund (ETF) that will invest in US infrastructure through master limited partnerships (MLPs) has been listed.

MLPs are a publicly traded US corporate structure that receives favourable tax treatment and are focused on the midstream energy industry, typically the infrastructure operators that run oil and gas pipelines.

The ETFS US Energy Infrastructure MLP GO Ucits ETF will track the performance of the Solactive US Energy Infrastructure MLP index, which has returned 268.3% since inception in September 2008 compared with 76% from the S&P 500 index.

The ETF will pay dividends quarterly, and will have a total expense ratio of 0.45%.
