Experience That Spans the Evolution
of the MLP Structure
Since its founding, Chickasaw Capital Management has stood on the leading edge of MLP investment management. Our tenure within the MLP market reaches back to the earliest days of the structure. From the genesis of our team in the early 1990s to the 2011 launch of our MainGate MLP Fund, we have played a direct role in the evolution of the MLP space — including our involvement with MLP IPO and secondary financings. Our longstanding relationships with MLP management teams provide an historical framework and foundation for our intellectual capital in this dynamic market.
At Chickasaw Capital Management, our investment team seeks to deliver investment results through discipline, fundamental research, quantitative skill and managing risk — while always maintaining a clear commitment to our clients.
