Within the universe of limited partnerships there are two disused in this post – Master Limited Partnership v. Public Limited Partnerships. A Master Limited Partnership (MLP) is a public limited partnership composed of corporate assets spun off (roll out) or private limited partnerships (roll up) with income, capital gains and/or tax shelter benefits. The interest evidencing ownership in a MLP are represented by depositary receipts traded in the secondary market. Thus, this type of investment enjoys some type of liquidity.
A Public Limited Partnership is a form of limited partnership that is registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission and offered to the public through registered broker/dealers. This type of partnership includes business models based upon assets such as real estate, oil and gas, and equipment leasing. Consequently, these partnerships may be oriented to producing income or capital gains, or, within passive income rules, to generate tax advantages for limited partners. The number of investors in such a partnership is limited only by the sponsor’s desire to cap the funds raised. A public limited partnership, which does not have an active secondary market, is distinguished from a private limited partnership, which is subject to its own rules.
