The net expense ratio also takes into account contractual fee waivers and/or expense reimbursements without which performance would have been less. These undertakings may not be amended or withdrawn for one year from the date of the current prospectus, unless approved by the Board.

 

The net expense ratio (if applicable) reflects that the Advisor has contractually agreed to limit fees and/or reimburse expenses (Excluding certain expenses) until at least 3/29/15, however, the Fund's Board of Trustees may terminate or amend this arrangement prior to that date. The next expense ratio is also net of deferred income tax expense, which represents an estimate of the Fund's potential tax liability. This expense may vary from year to year. A change in the estimate of deferred tax liability could result in a loss to net asset value.

 

The performance data quoted represents past performance, which does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance and expense ratios may be lower or higher than the data quoted. All fund returns include change in share price, reinvested distributions and the sales charges as listed below, unless "without sales charge" is indicated. Returns do not consider capital gains or income taxes on an individual's investment. Class A Share returns include a maximum sales charge of 5.75% (equity), 4.75% (most fixed income), 3.5% (Senior Floating Rate Fund, Senior Floating Rate Plus), 2.25% ("limited term" fixed income funds and Currency Opportunities Fund) and 0% (Money Market Funds). Class B Share returns include contingent deferred sales charge as follows:  For years 1 - 6 respectively, charges are 5%, 4%, 3%, 3%, 2%, 1% except for "limited term" fixed income funds (4%, 3%, 2%, 2%, 1%, 0%) and Senior Floating Rate (3%, 2% 1.5%, 1.5%, 1%, 0%). Class C Share returns include a 1% contingent deferred sales charge and are subject to an annual asset-based sales charge of 0.75%. Class N Share returns include a 1% contingent deferred sales charge and are subject to an annual asset-based sales charge of 0.25%.

News & Announcements

Special Risks Investing in MLPs involves additional risks as compared to the risks of investing in common stock, including risks related to cash flow, dilution and voting rights. The Fund's investments are concentrated in the energy infrastructure industry with an emphasis on securities issued by MLPs, which may increase volatility. Energy infrastructure companies are subject to risks specific to the industry such as fluctuations in commodity prices, reduced volumes of natural gas or other energy commodities, environmental hazards, changes in the macroeconomic or the regulatory environment or extreme weather. MLPs may trade less frequently than larger companies due to their smaller capitalizations which may result in erratic price movement or difficulty in buying or selling. MLPs are subject to significant regulation and may be adversely affected by changes in the regulatory environment including the risk that an MLP could lose its tax status as a partnership. Additional management fees and other expenses are associated with investing in MLP funds. The Fund is subject to certain MLP tax risks. An investment in the Fund does not offer the same tax benefits of a direct investment in an MLP. The Fund is organized as a Subchapter "C" Corporation and is subject to U.S. federal income tax on taxable income at the corporate tax rate (currently as high as 35%) as well as state and local income taxes. The potential benefit of investing in MLPs generally is their treatment as partnerships for federal income tax. Many MLPs accrue deferred income taxes for future tax liabilities associated with the portion of MLP distributions considered to be a tax-deferred return of capital and for any net operating gains as well as capital appreciation on its investments. This deferred tax liability is reflected in the daily NAV and as a result a MLP fund's after-tax performance could differ significantly from the underlying assets even if the pre-tax performance is closely tracked.
Access index definitions.
Class I shares are only offered to eligible institutional investors that make a minimum initial investment of $5 million or more and to retirement plan service provider platforms. The minimum account balance for class I shares is $2.5 million. Class I shares are sold at net asset value without a sales charge. Please see Fund prospectuses for additional information.
For Class A Shares the starting value is $9,425 which takes into account the current maximum initial sales charge (unless "no sales charge" option chosen).
"Year to Date" returns are cumulative, not annualized, and do not reflect sales charges.  These returns would be lower if sales charges were taken into consideration.  Short-term returns may not be indicative of longer-term performance, which should also be considered when making investment decisions.
Index performance will be available approximately five days after each month-end.
Daily net asset value and dollar change of the fund is as of the previous business day's closing. Fund net asset values are updated at approximately 7 p.m. ET daily.
OppenheimerFunds' equity style box is based on the portfolio's overall targeted capitalization range and relative valuation as determined by OFI.

For each fund with at least a three-year history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a fund's monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads, and redemption fees), placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance.  The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star with some adjustments for multiple share class portfolios.   The Overall Morningstar Rating for a fund is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five and ten-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating Metrics.  Oppenheimer SteelPath MLP Select 40 Fund was rated against the following numbers of U.S.-domiciled Equity Energy over the following time periods ended 3/31/14:  101 funds in the last three years, funds in the last five years, and in the last ten years.  With respect to these Equity Energy funds, Oppenheimer SteelPath MLP Select 40 Fund received a Morningstar Rating of 4 stars, — stars and — stars for the three-, five-, and ten-year periods, respectively.  Morningstar Rating is for the A share class only and rating may include more than one share class of funds in the category, including other share classes of this Fund. Different share classes may have different expenses, performance characteristics and Morningstar ratings.  Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Class A shares rated 4 stars overall by Morningstar among  101  Equity Energy funds for the 3-, 5-, and 10 year period ended 3/31/14 based on risk-adjusted performance.
