Index Description

The Zacks MLP Index selects 25 Master Limited Partnerships (MLP) utilizing a methodology proprietary to Zacks. The objective of the Index is to select a group of MLPs with the potential to yield and outperform on a risk adjusted basis the S&P 500 Index and other benchmark indices. The Index constituent selection methodology utilizes multi-factor proprietary selection rules to identify those MLPs that offer the greatest yield by assessing various factors, including yield, liquidity, and relative value. The approach is specifically designed to enhance investment applications and investability. Index reconstitution will begin quarterly after the close of the last business day of January, April, July, and October.
