For Release: 03 Apr 13
Who/What:
On Thursday, April 4, executives from Atlantic Trust and Barclays, including Adam Karpf, Portfolio Manager for Atlantic Trust's Master Limited Partnership (MLP) strategies, will visit the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) to highlight the listing of the Barclays ETN+ Select MLP ETN on NYSE Arca.  The Barclays ETN+ Select MLP ETN began trading on NYSE Arca on Wednesday, March 13, 2013 under the ticker Symbol "ATMP."

The ETN is designed to provide investors with exposure to a basket of midstream US MLPs, limited liability companies ("LLCs") and corporations by tracking the volume weighted average price (VWAP) of the Atlantic Trust Select MLP Index (the Index). Additionally, the Index also provides exposure to general partners of US MLPs in Canada.

With the addition of the Barclays ETN+ Select MLP ETN, Barclays now has 82 ETNs currently listed in North America.  The suite of ETNs provides investors with a way to access a range of asset classes or strategies, including equities, volatility, commodities, fixed income and emerging markets.

In honor of this occasion, Adam Karpf, joined by Barclays executives, will ring the NYSE Opening Bell.
