DALLAS, June 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Cushing® Asset Management, LP, and Swank Capital, LLC announce the publication of revised Index Methodology Guides for The Cushing® 30 MLP Index, The Cushing® MLP Market Cap Index and The Cushing® MLP High Income Index (each an "Index" and collectively the "Indices"). The revised Index Methodology Guides remove the requirement that constituent security candidates maintain a stable or increasing dividend or distribution policy as well as the requirement that an Index constituent be removed in the case of a dividend or distribution cut. In addition, the Index Methodology Guides address adjustments to the weighting of Index constituents in the event that there are fewer than 30 eligible constituent security candidates for any Index upon rebalancing.

The revisions also incorporate language changes to enhance clarity and update references. The revised Index Methodology Guides are available for review on the Cushing Indices website at http://www.cushingasset.com/indices and will become effective on June 11, 2021
