The Index is a modified market capitalization-weighted index of master limited partnerships (MLPs) that do not have an energy focus and that have a market capitalization of at least $100 million at the time of inclusion. The capitalization weighting methodology is referred to as modified because it includes a 10% weighting limit under which the MLP classes of a particular issuer may not exceed 10% of the total capitalization of the Index. The Index was created on April 1, 2014 and, therefore, has no performance history prior to that date.
