You might want to read the information on their web site under Investor Relations http://www.brookfieldinfrastructure.com/InvestorRelations/. Particularly try the FAQs http://tinyurl.com/cntwkg, especially pages 8 - 10. BIP does qualify for an IRA and there is no UBTI (although they do not guarantee there never will be). Some of the FAQs concern the spin-off from BAM that happened last year and would not apply to you if you are just now considering a purchase. There can be return of capital, and has been some already, but that does not disqualify it from an IRA.

I own it and am happy with its infrastructure holdings for the future.
