Yorkville Files To Expand High Income Family Of MLP ETFs

Yorkville ETF Advisors, a leader in MLP investment products, has filed with the SEC to expand its innovative and rules-based series of exchanged-traded funds built out of the firm’s extensive research and asset management experience with master limited partnership (MLPs) investments.

The filings include the Yorkville High Income Composite MLP ETF and the Yorkville High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF. The Indexes are comprised of MLPs that meet certain criteria relating to current yield, coverage ratio and distribution growth.

“These filings come on the heels of the successful Yorkville High Income MLP ETF (YMLP) launch, which is the first and only ETF to deliver exposure to high income, commodity-based MLPs. Since its launch, YMLP has become the third-most successful ETF launch in 2012 in terms of average daily volume,”* asserts Darren Schuringa, CFA, Managing Partner at Yorkville ETF Advisors.

Yorkville’s broad MLP research and asset management experience continues to be the foundation for its commitment to deliver high quality income MLP products compared to other alternatives in the MLP ETF marketplace.

Yorkville High Income Composite MLP ETF will track the Solactive High Income Composite MLP Index, a composite representing every MLP sector.

The Yorkville High Income Infrastructure MLP ETF will track the Solactive High Income Infrastructure MLP Index, a well-diversified, rules-based index focused on the infrastructure sectors of the MLP asset class.

Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC will serve as investment adviser to the Fund, while Yorkville ETF Advisors, LLC and Index Management Solutions, LLC will serve as sub-advisers.

The Solactive Indexes are sponsored by Structured Solutions AG, which is independent of the Fund. Structured Solutions AG determines the components and relative weightings of the securities in the Index and publishes information regarding the Index.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Narrowly focused investments typically exhibit higher volatility. Investments in common units of MLPs involve risks that differ from investments in common stock including risks inherent in the structure of MLPs, including tax risks, risk related to limited control of management or the general partner or managing member, limited rights to vote on matters affecting the MLP, except with respect to extraordinary transactions, and conflicts of interest between the general partner or managing member and its affiliates, on the one hand, and the limited partners or members, on the other hand, including those arising from incentive distribution payments or corporate opportunities, and cash flow risks. See the prospectus for more detail. MLP common units can be affected by macro-economic and other factors affecting the stock market in general, expectations of interest rates, investor sentiment towards MLPs or the energy sector, changes in a particular issuer’s financial condition, or unfavorable or unanticipated poor performance of a particular issuer (in the case of MLPs, generally measured in terms of distributable cash flow). Prices of common units of individual MLPs and other equity securities also can be affected by fundamentals unique to the partnership or company, including cash flow growth, cash generating power and distribution coverage. The Fund is non-diversified. There is no guarantee that income will be paid.

Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC serves as the investment advisor and Yorkville ETF Advisors, LLC and Index Management Solutions, LLC serve as sub advisors to the fund. The Funds are distributed by SEI Investments Distribution Co., which is not affiliated with Exchange Traded Concepts, LLC or any of its affiliates.
