Fund Description

The Oppenheimer SteelPath MLP Income Fund Class A (MLPDX) is an actively managed fund that focuses on the master limited partnership (MLP) segment of the energy sector. The fund uses fundamental analysis to identify U.S. midstream pipeline MLPs that have strong projected distribution growth and high current distributions. MLPDX overweights MLPs with those attributes but that are trading for discounts to their potential values.

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