As the vast majority of traded partnerships have operations in the oil and gas industries, the S&P MLP Index follows the Global Industry Classification Standard (GICS®) and focuses on companies in the GICS Energy Sector and the GICS Gas Utilities Industry. MLPs are limited partnerships that are publicly traded on a securities exchange. MLPs are characterized by favorable tax treatment due to their partnership structure and by high, steady distribution payments. Both the interest in MLPs and the number of listed MLPs has greatly increased in recent years.
