The Tortoise MLP & Energy Infrastructure Fund invests in securities across the capital structure of North American midstream energy infrastructure companies; including MLPs, common equity, preferred equity, and bonds. The fund’s goal is to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns, greater liquidity, and lower volatility relative to the Alerian MLP Index over a market cycle. We believe these midstream assets have strong business fundamentals and expanded growth opportunities.

The Fund is designed to provide:

  • Access to an increased opportunity set by investing across the capital structure of midstream energy infrastructure companies
  • Seeks a high level of current income
  • Ability to opportunistically shift across the capital structure as market conditions and valuations change
  • Efficient tax flow-through structure
  • One 1099 (no K-1s)
  • No unrelated business taxable income (UBTI)
  • IRA and tax-exempt suitability
  • Higher minimum investment and lower fees

Calendar Year Performance

Performance for periods over one year is annualized. The performance data quoted here represents past performance. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate, so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance information quoted.

The performance shown for periods prior to July 18, 2014, was for a privately-offered class of shares of the Fund that no longer exists and was exchanged for the current publicly-offered shares of the open-end mutual Fund.

The Alerian MLP Index is a leading gauge of energy infrastructure Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs). The capped, float-adjusted, capitalization-weighted index, whose constituents earn the majority of their cash flow from midstream activities involving energy commodities, is disseminated real-time on a price-return basis (AMZ) and on a total-return basis (AMZX).
