The AMNAX is a comprehensive midstream index that reflects the investable universe of midstream securities as it is agnostic to corporate structure. The AMZX is used in addition to the AMNAX in order to provide further market sector performance comparisons to exchange-traded energy related partnerships. Prior to 1/31/19 the S&P MLP Index (SPMLP) was used in addition to the AMZX in order to provide further market sector performance comparisons.
