Investment Objective

The Portfolio seeks investment results that correspond (before fees and expenses) generally to the price and yield performance of its underlying index, the Alerian Energy Infrastructure Index (the "Index").

Description

ALPS | Alerian Energy Infrastructure Portfolio delivers exposure to the Alerian Energy Infrastructure Index (CME: AMEI), a composite of North American energy infrastructure companies engaged in the pipeline transportation, storage, and processing of energy commodities. Index constituents belong to one of the four categories: US energy infrastructure MLPs (25%), US general partners (25%), US energy infrastructure companies (25%), and Canadian energy infrastructure companies (25%).

Investing in North American Energy Infrastructure

The energy renaissance in North America is unlocking vast reserves of oil and natural gas and changing how energy is moved, processed and stored. Driven by new technologies, energy infrastructure companies are building the real assets necessary to connect these reserves to their various points of demand. Once heavily dependent on imported energy, the U.S. is now on its way toward energy independence by 2030.

  • Real assets such as pipelines, storage tanks, and processing centers provide inflation protection
  • Limited commodity exposure due to a toll-road, PRICE x VOLUME business model
  • An estimated $641 billion dollars of energy infrastructure assets will be built over the next 22 years

Potential Benefits

  • Income Potential - Annual dividends driven by stable cash flows
  • Diversification - Low correlation to equities and bonds
  • Growth - Total return potential without fund-level corporate taxes

Diversification does not eliminate the risk of experiencing investment losses.
