About Midstream MLPs (Master Limited Partnerships)
Many midstream (energy transportation, processing and infrastructure) businesses in the US are structured as Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs). These MLPs typically have "toll-road" business models, where revenues are driven by volume, providing some insulation from the ups-and-downs of oil and gas prices. Over the last 10 years, MLPs have delivered investors impressive yields, as well as diversification, as MLPs have shown low correlation to other common investments. See how they stack up to other common asset classes in the table below.
