Advisor Access: Why should investors look at master limited partnerships (MLPs) right now?
Barry Davis: The main benefits of investing in an MLP are the following: 1) they are a great way to invest in our country’s shale revolution, which has created unprecedented demand for new energy infrastructure; and 2) the fact that distributions (which is MLP jargon for “dividends”) are not taxed.
MLPs combine the tax benefits of a limited partnership (which does not pay taxes from profits) with the access to capital of a publicly traded company.
The combination of steady growth and reliable, tax-advantaged distributions can make an MLP an excellent investment vehicle, but not all MLPs are created equal.
AA: How can the two parts of your company, the GP and the LP, be a fit for a portfolio?
BD: There are two distinct ways to invest in EnLink Midstream: through the purchase of units in EnLink Midstream Partners, LP (ENLK), an MLP, or the purchase of shares in EnLink Midstream, LLC (ENLC), the GP. This business model provides institutions that are unable to make direct MLP investments with a way to participate in EnLink’s growth through common unit ownership of the GP.
