Recovery of Investment Losses in MAI Energy Infrastructure & MLP Fund

Have you suffered losses investing in MAI Energy Infrastructure & MLP Fund? If so, the attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you through FINRA Arbitration.

The MAI Energy Infrastructure & MLP Fund is an open-end mutual fund consisting of midstream master limited partnerships (MLPs), and energy and infrastructure securities, according to Business Wire.

The MAI Energy Infrastructure & MLP Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation and current income through a diversified portfolio of investments in energy infrastructure and MLPs. The benchmark for the fund is the Alerian MLP Index. The fund is structured as a regulated investment company (RIC), as RICs are generally not subject to the 35% corporate tax. However, RIC regulations limit investments in MLPs to 25% of a fund’s portfolio.

The MAI Energy Infrastructure & MLP Fund was formerly named the Vertical Capital MLP & Energy Infrastructure Fund.

MLPs are Complex & Risky

Master Limited Partnerships (MLP) are extremely complex and risky, making them better suited for institutional investors or wealthy and sophisticated retail investors. The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending high risk mutual funds that invest primarily in MLPs.

If your financial advisor over-concentrated your portfolio in the MAI Energy Infrastructure & MLP Fund, you may have a viable claim to recover your losses.  Financial advisors are required to make suitable investment recommendations, accounting for your age, income, net worth, investment experience, and investment objectives.  Diversification is the key to reducing risk.  As such, over-concentrated exposure to any sector or investment but particularly volatile industries like oil and gas, can be unsuitable for many investors.
