HOUSTON, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Salient Partners L.P. (Salient), a $17.4 billion asset management firm, has launched the Salient MLP & Energy Infrastructure Fund II (Class A Ticker: SMAPX, Class C Ticker: SMFPX, Class I Ticker: SMLPX). This is the firm's first mutual fund focused on master limited partnerships (MLPs) and energy infrastructure companies, giving investors the potential to capitalize on the investment opportunities available in this industry.
The Salient MLP & Energy Infrastructure Fund II (the "Fund") seeks to provide a high level of total return and emphasizes making quarterly cash distributions to shareholders. Its strategy entails investing at least 80 percent of its net assets in equity securities of MLPs and energy infrastructure companies of all market capitalizations. The Fund may, for example, invest in MLP Affiliates, C-Corps, Shipping LPs and Royalty Trusts, broadening the traditional range of energy infrastructure investment opportunities.
The Fund announced its first quarterly distribution of $0.125 per share for the period of September 19, 2012 to November 30, 2012.
The distribution for the quarter ended November 30, 2012 will be payable on December 5, 2012 to common stockholders of record on November 21, 2012. It is anticipated that a significant portion of this distribution will be treated as a return of capital for tax purposes. The final determination of such amount will be made in early 2013 when the Company can determine its earnings and profits for the 2012 fiscal year. The final tax status of the distribution may differ substantially from its preliminary information.
The Fund's investments are concentrated in the energy infrastructure industry with an emphasis on securities issued by MLPs, which may increase price fluctuation. The value of commodity-linked investments such as the MLPs and Energy Infrastructure Companies (including Midstream MLPs and Energy Infrastructure Companies) in which the Fund invests are subject to risks specific to the industry they serve, such as fluctuations in commodity prices, reduced volumes of available natural gas or other energy commodities, slowdowns in new construction and acquisitions, a sustained reduced demand for crude oil, natural gas and refined petroleum products, depletion of the natural gas reserves or other commodities, changes in the macroeconomic or regulatory environment (including the risk that an MLP could lose its tax status as a partnership), environmental hazards, rising interest rates and threats of attack by terrorists on energy assets, each of which could affect the Fund's profitability.
In addition, investing in MLPs involves additional risks as compared to the risks of investing in common stock, including risks related to cash flow, dilution and voting rights. Such companies may trade less frequently than larger companies due to their smaller capitalizations which may result in erratic price movement or difficulty in buying or selling.
Additional management fees and other expenses are associated with investing in MLP funds. The Fund is subject to certain MLP tax risks and risks associated with accounting for its deferred tax liability which could materially reduce the net asset value. An investment in the Fund does not offer the tax benefits of a direct investment in an MLP.
No fund is a complete investment program and you may lose money investing in a fund. The Fund may engage in other investment practices that may involve additional risks and you should review the Fund's prospectus for a complete description.
You should consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Fund carefully before investing. The prospectus contains this and other information about the Fund and is available, along with information on other Salient funds, by calling 866-667-9228 or from your financial professional. The prospectus should be read carefully before investing.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
