ClearBridge Energy MLP Opportunity Fund Inc. is a closed ended equity mutual fund that invests in the public equity markets of the United States, according to Bloomberg. The fund reportedly primarily invests in equity securities of MLPs with operations in crude oil, natural gas liquids, and refined products infrastructure.
Unfortunately for investors, most oil and gas MLPs are down substantially in the last year. According to reports today, the share price of Clearbridge Energy Midstream Opportunity Fund has declined 89% in the past twelve months.
MLPs are Complex & Risky
The White Law Group is investigating the liability that brokerage firms may have for recommending high risk mutual funds that invest primarily in MLPs.
Master Limited Partnerships (MLP) are extremely complex and risky, making them better suited for institutional investors or wealthy and sophisticated retail investors.
Aggressive financial advisors may have unsuitably recommended MLP funds in an effort to chase yield. Investors who buy solely on the basis of the dividend may experience losses as the dividend is cut and the stock price declines in response.
If your financial advisor over-concentrated your portfolio in oil and gas investments, 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.
