A master limited partnership, or MLP, is a publicly traded limited partnership. It offers the tax benefits of a limited partnership and the liquidity of publicly traded securities. An MLP must generate at least 90% of its income from Internal Revenue Service-deemed “qualifying” sources like the production, processing, and transportation of oil, natural gas, and coal.

Master limited partnerships can be complicated investments with many risks; investors should seek a complete understanding of any investment from their broker or investment adviser, to ensure the product is suitable. Brokers and investment advisers who recommend unsuitable investments may be subject to disciplinary action by FINRA or the Securities and Exchange Commission.
