  • Key Points

    High Income Potential
    Underlying index targets high income MLPs with attractive yield and distribution characteristics
    Potential for Tax-Deferred Distributions 
    Fund is taxed as a corporation, allowing for potentially tax-deferred distributions, but may underperform its index during appreciating MLP markets
    Simplified Tax Reporting

    Fund shareholders receive Form 1099 instead of the complicated K-1s associated with direct MLP investments

    The 30-Day SEC Yield has been adjusted to reflect estimates for return of capital that would result in a reduction of income to the 30-Day SEC Yield calculation which may cause the yield to be negative.

    2Van Eck Associates Corporation (the “Adviser”) will pay all expenses of the Fund, except for the fee payment under the investment management agreement, acquired fund fees and expenses, interest expense, offering costs, trading expenses, taxes (including accrued deferred tax liability) and extraordinary expenses. The Fund’s accrued deferred tax liability, if any, is reflected each day in the Fund’s net asset value per share and may vary greatly from year to year depending on the nature of the Fund’s investments, the performance of those investments and general market conditions. Therefore, any estimate of deferred income tax expense/(benefit) cannot be reliably predicted from year to year. State franchise taxes are separate and distinct from state income taxes. Due to the nature of the Fund’s investments, the Fund may be required to file franchise tax returns in several states. The Fund is expected to absorb net operating losses and accrue net deferred tax expense primarily related to unrealized depreciation on investments and state franchise tax liability.
