The AAII Phoenix Chapter presents...

MLP 101: The Basics of Master Limited Partnerships

    Discussed by:

    Mary S. Lyman
    Executive Director, National Association of Publicly Traded Partnerships

Master limited partnerships (MLPs) are becoming increasingly popular with investors who are looking for reliable income with a potential for growth. MLPs, which are partnerships that are traded on stock exchanges, operate mostly in energy-related businesses. They are particularly active in building and maintaining energy infrastructure: the pipelines, processing plants, storage terminals, and other facilities that help oil and gas get from the places they are produced to the places they are consumed. While MLPs can be a very attractive investment, it is important for investors to understand them before getting in, as they come with some complexities. Mary Lyman, executive director of the trade association for MLPs, will explain what MLPs are, how they work, and the pros and cons of being an MLP investor.

Due to greater uncertainties, financial planning after retirement becomes more challenging.

We’ll also discuss the impact of current events in the financial world as we learn from each other by sharing our experience and knowledge. Our group welcomes different viewpoints and participation from both experienced and new investors.

No one is as concerned about your wealth as you (or your spouse). All AAII meeting participants are invited to improve their wealth building and management skills in the TIA activities. You will benefit from a combination of tutorial presentations and active discussions. These span investing for core portfolio growth to trading stocks and options for monthly income. The depth ranges from active portfolio managers and traders to those just starting to take charge of their investments. This includes oversight for professional managers. You will develop tools ranging from techniques for managing personal psychology to technical analysis. We will look at everything from holding GE to a weekly option on Apple. You are welcome to join our quest to combat the unprecedented market changes and uncertainties.
