Fund Description

The Oppenheimer SteelPath MLP Alpha Fund Class A (MLPAX) is an actively managed fund focused on the master limited partnership (MLPs) segment of the energy sector. The fund uses fundamental analysis to identify U.S. midstream pipeline MLPs that have strong projected distribution growth. MLPAX is a “best ideas” fund in which the managers will only own the 20 MLPs they feel are best suited for the portfolio.

Given its narrow focus on one small segment of the energy sector, MLPAX is suitable as a small satellite position. The fund is managed by Oppenheimer Funds.
