BP Core Midstream™ MLP Strategy and Process

The Strategy invests primarily in Master Limited Partnerships (MLPs) involved in the transportation, storage and processing of oil and gas. Our MLP mutual fund management and investment strategy process is optimized to discover and exploit attendant investment opportunities.

Investment Strategy

The Strategy seeks to maximize total returns via capital appreciation as well as significant current income, typically treated as “return of capital” to the investor.

Target Characteristics of Portfolio Holdings:

  • Largely investment-grade or supported by an investment-grade sponsor
  • Exposed to stable, long-term energy demand growth trends in North America
  • Assets are positioned in a way that may be difficult for competitors to replicate
  • Cash flows which grow with inflation, supported by strong counter-parties
  • Strong balance sheet metrics, sufficient cash flows to support an attractive yield

Investment Process

The MLP mutual fund investment process considers a broad range of carefully selected macro and micro factors.

These factors are systematically assessed and analyzed to identify key insights and candidate investment strategy opportunities — which are in-turn validated then selectively exploited to create investor value amid changing supply, demand and environmental conditions.

Investment Management

The Core Midstream™ Management team possesses the experience, instincts, and access to industry leaders to identify uncommon insights into MLP mutual funds and put them to work for fund investors.
