MLP University

Welcome to the MLP University! We’ve designed our curriculum for both new and experienced investors. Please see the courses below to get started.

MLP 101 - An introduction to Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs)

This section is designed for people that are brand new to the MLP space or those that simply want a refresher. Master Limited Partnerships, or MLPs, are companies engaged in the transportation, storage, processing, and production of natural resources. When most investors think about MLPs, they focus on midstream energy MLPs—those companies involved in transportation, storage, and processing. These toll-road business models benefit from benign federal regulation and generate consistent cash flows. An investment in midstream MLPs is an investment in the build-out of North American energy infrastructure over the next several decades.
