Investors frustrated with low interest rates have turned to the equities market for yield, specifically master limited partnerships and dividend stocks, according to an ETF manager.
ETF Trends editor Tom Lydon sits down with Jeremy Held, Senior Vice President/Director of Research at ALPS Fund Services, to discuss the firm’s lineup of ETFs.
ALPS specializes in satellite and alternative investment strategies that can diversify core equity and fixed-income portfolios, Held explains.
“We partner with people in the commodity space, private equity, master limited partnerships, emerging markets and global real estate,” he tells Lydon.
Within equities, investors have been gravitating to master limited partnerships with products such as the Alerian MLP ETF (NYSEArca: AMLP) for income, Held said.
