Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) are a type of limited partnership that is publicly traded. MLP’s receive the same tax benefits of a limited partnership combined with the liquidity of a publicly traded security. In order to be classified as an MLP the partnership must receive 90% of its cash flow from a “qualifying source” – such as real estate, natural resources or commodities.
MLPs are extremely complex and risky, making them only suitable for wealthy, sophisticated retail investors or institutional investors. The high fees they generate may cause unscrupulous financial advisors looking to maximize their own commissions to recommend them improperly.
