NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- The Federal Reserve's policies of zero percent interest rates and quantitative easing have been referred to in some circles as a war on savers. That's because interest rates on money markets, certificates of deposit and most parts of the bond market have been too low to generate a sufficient income.This has caused investors to seek out bond market alternatives including master limited partnerships, or MLPs. Typically MLPs capture a royalty off the transportation of energy products through a pipeline.
