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.

“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.”

“When we last interviewed our next guest, about a year and a half ago, he was predicting that oil prices were bottoming and about to move higher.  And he was right.  The price moved from $38 a barrel up into the $50s.  What does he think about the energy markets now?”
