Why Master Limited Partnerships?

Master limited partnerships are uniquely valuable retirement income investments. Historically, they have delivered exceptional returns and offer attractive growing tax advantaged income.

MLPs offer yields that significantly exceed US Treasury notes and generally exceed income alternatives such as REITs, utilities, corporate bonds and high yield bonds.

Our decision to focus on MLPs is based on their exceptional ability to grow stable tax advantaged income streams that are critical to retirement income generation.

Our Service

We begin with a meeting and determine your investment objectives, risk tolerances and special needs. We write a tailored investment policy statement that is incorporated in our Investment Advisory Contract.

We open accounts fulfill your objectives. We may have an MLP account for income generation or a quantitative strategy for a range of investment objectives.

For institutional investors we offer MLP models based on our Bespoken MLP Portfolio Profiles and sub-advise for asset managers.

The risk premium today, March 29th, is 6.29%. In March 2000, at the Tech Bubble peak, the risk premium was -2.07%. That month Robert Shiller published Irrational Exuberance which showed that the S&P 500 was the most overvalued since 1929. The future is unknown regarding the future of COVID-19, oil prices and the market; however, there appears to be a contagion of panicked concerns regarding the current state of the economy, markets and COVID-19 that we are in a state of Irrational Pessimism.

Stock, bonds and real estate markets could be profoundly hurt by rising interest rates. The Federal Reserve is caught in a terrible predicament. It must quickly raise interest rates to stop today’s unanticipated rise in inflation without bursting the stock, bond, and real estate market bubbles. Not since the double-digit inflation in the late 1970s, has the Federal Reserve been so wrong.

“Unfortunately, most people who buy [royalty trusts] don’t realize that they tend to be depleting assets,” says Tyson Halsey of Income Growth Advisors, an investment firm in Charleston, S.C. “They end up being bad for retired people who think they are getting a fixed-income alternative.”

Halsey displays great market foresight in this interview explaining how after 40 years of declines, interest rates are artificially and abnormally low and their rise will hurt both the stock and bond markets.

Are Financial Markets At The Precipice? November 11th, 2021, South Carolina Business Review

Inflation is a serious problem that is getting worse. Last week, the producer price index (PPI) registered 9.6%, the worst level in 40 years. The Federal Reserve sought only “transitory” inflation of 2%, but now it is far exceeding those forecasts. When the monetary policy of the most important financial institution in the world is badly missing anticipated results, things are going awry, and bad things can happen.
