Performance quoted is past performance and cannot guarantee comparable future results; current performance may be lower or higher. Investment return and principal value will vary so that you may have a gain or a loss when you sell shares.

Performance shown at NAV does not include applicable front-end or CDSC sales charges, which would have reduced the performance.

Performance figures reflect reinvested distributions and changes in net asset value (NAV) and the effect of the maximum sales charge unless otherwise stated.

Had fees not been waived and/or expenses reimbursed currently or in the past, returns would have been lower.

As the result of a reorganization on May 24, 2019, the returns of the fund for periods on or prior to May 24, 2019 reflect performance of the Oppenheimer predecessor fund. Share class returns will differ from the predecessor fund due to a change in expenses and sales charges.

 About risk

As with any mutual fund investment, loss of money is a risk of investing. An investment in the Fund is not a deposit in a bank and is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other governmental agency. The risks associated with an investment in the Fund can increase during times of significant market volatility. The principal risks of investing in the Fund are:

Risks of Master Limited Partnerships. Investments in securities of master limited partnerships (MLPs) are subject to all the risks of investments in common stock, in addition to risks related to the following: a common unit holder’s limited control and limited rights to vote on matters affecting the MLP; potential conflicts of interest between the MLP and the MLP’s general partner; cash flow; dilution; and the general partner’s right to require unit holders to sell their common units at an undesirable time or price. MLP common unit holders may not elect the general partner or its directors and have limited ability to remove an MLP’s general partner. MLPs may issue additional common units without unit holder approval, which could dilute the ownership interests of investors holding MLP common units. MLP common units, like other equity securities, can be affected by macroeconomic and other factors affecting the stock market in general, expectations of interest rates, investor sentiment towards an issuer or certain market sector, changes in a particular issuer’s financial condition, or unfavorable or unanticipated poor performance of a particular issuer. Prices of common units of individual MLPs, like prices of other equity securities, also can be affected by fundamentals unique to the partnership or company, including earnings power and coverage ratios. A holder of MLP common units typically would not be shielded to the same extent that a shareholder of a corporation would be. In certain circumstances, creditors of an MLP would have the right to seek return of capital distributed to a limited partner, which would continue after an investor sold its investment in the MLP. The value of an MLP security may decline for reasons that directly relate to the issuer, such as management performance, financial leverage and reduced demand for the issuer’s products or services. Due to the heavy state and federal regulations that an MLP’s assets may be subject to, an MLP’s profitability could be adversely impacted by changes in the regulatory environment.

MLP Tax Risk. MLPs are generally treated as partnerships for U.S. federal income tax purposes. MLPs generally do not pay U.S. federal income tax at the partnership level. Rather, each partner is allocated a share of the partnership’s income, gains, losses, deductions and expenses regardless of whether it receives a cash distribution from the MLP. A change in current tax law, or a change in the underlying business mix of a given MLP, could result in an MLP being treated as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, which could result in the MLP being required to pay federal income tax (as well as state and local income taxes) on its taxable income. This could have the effect of reducing the amount of cash available for distribution by the MLP, resulting in a reduction of the value of the Fund’s investment in the MLP and lower income to the Fund.

To the extent a distribution received by the Fund from an MLP is treated as a return of capital, the Fund’s adjusted tax basis in the interests of the MLP may be reduced, which will result in an increase in an amount of income or gain (or decrease in the amount of loss) that will be recognized by the Fund for tax purposes upon the sale of any such interests or upon subsequent distributions in respect of such interests. Furthermore, any return of capital distribution received from the MLP may require the Fund to restate the character of its distributions and amend any shareholder tax reporting previously issued. Changes in the laws, regulations or related interpretations relating to the Fund’s investments in MLPs could increase the Fund’s expenses, reduce its cash distributions, negatively impact the value of an investment in an MLP, or otherwise impact the Fund’s ability to implement its investment strategy.

Risks of Energy Infrastructure and Energy-Related Assets or Activities. Energy infrastructure MLPs are subject to risks specific to the energy and energy-related industries, including, but not limited to: fluctuations in commodity prices may impact the volume of energy commodities transported, processed, stored or distributed; reduced volumes of natural gas or other energy commodities available for transporting, processing, storing or distributing may affect the profitability of an MLP; slowdowns in new construction and acquisitions can limit growth potential; reduced demand for oil, natural gas and petroleum products, particularly for a sustained period of time, could adversely affect MLP revenues and cash flows; depletion of natural gas reserves or other commodities, if not replaced, could impact an MLP’s ability to make distributions; changes in the regulatory environment could adversely affect the profitability of MLPs; extreme weather and environmental hazards could impact the value of MLP securities; rising interest rates could result in higher costs of capital and drive investors into other investment opportunities; and threats of attack by terrorists on energy assets could impact the market for MLPs.

Concentration Risk. Concentration risk is the risk that the Fund’s investments in the securities of companies in one industry or market sector will cause the Fund to be more exposed to developments affecting a single industry or market sector than a more broadly diversified fund would be.

Because the Fund invests primarily in securities of issuers in the energy sector and its underlying industries, it could experience greater volatility or may perform poorly during a downturn in that industry or sector because it is more susceptible to the economic, environmental and regulatory risks associated with that industry or sector than a Fund that invests more broadly.

Liquidity Risks. Securities that are difficult to value or to sell promptly at an acceptable price are generally referred to as “illiquid” investments. If it is required to sell investments quickly or at a particular time (including sales to meet redemption requests) the Fund could realize a loss on illiquid investments.

Liquidity Risks of MLP Securities. Although MLPs trade publicly, certain MLP securities may trade less frequently than those of larger companies due to their smaller capitalizations. When certain MLP securities experience limited trading volumes, they may experience abrupt or erratic price movements at times. Investments in securities that are less actively traded or over time experience decreased trading volume may restrict the Fund’s ability to take advantage of other market opportunities or to dispose of securities, which may affect adversely its ability to make dividend distributions.

MLP Affiliates. The Fund may invest in the equity securities of MLP affiliates, including the general partners or managing members of MLPs and companies that own MLP general partner interests that are energy infrastructure companies. Such issuers may be organized and/or taxed as corporations and therefore may not offer the advantageous tax characteristics of MLP units. The Fund may purchase such other MLP equity securities through market transactions, as well as through direct placements. The Fund may also invest in MLP I-Shares, which represent an indirect ownership interest in MLP common units. MLP I-Shares differ from MLP common units primarily in that, instead of receiving cash distributions, holders of MLP I-Shares receive distributions in the form of additional I-Shares. Issuers of MLP I-Shares are treated as corporations and not partnerships for tax purposes. MLP affiliates also include publicly traded limited liability companies that own, directly or indirectly, general partner interests of MLPs.

Private Investments in Public Equity (PIPEs). PIPEs are equity securities issued in a private placement by companies that have outstanding, publicly traded equity securities of the same class. Shares in PIPEs generally are not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission until after a certain time period from the date the private sale is completed. As with investments in other types of restricted securities, such an investment may be illiquid. The Fund’s ability to dispose of securities acquired in PIPE transactions may depend on the registration of such securities for resale or on the ability to sell such securities through an exempt transaction. Any number of factors may prevent or delay a proposed registration. There is no guarantee, however, that an active trading market for the securities will exist at the time of disposition of the securities, and the lack of such a market could hurt the market value of the Fund’s investments. The Fund may not be able to sell all the securities on short notice, and the sale of the securities could lower the market price of the securities.

Risks of Deferred Tax Liability. The Fund is classified for federal tax purposes as a taxable regular corporation (also referred to as a “C corporation”) subject to U.S. federal income tax on its taxable income at the rates applicable to corporations, as well as state and local income taxes. Election to be taxed as a C corporation rather than a regulated investment company is a relatively recent strategy for open-end registered investment companies. This strategy involves complicated accounting, tax, net asset value and share valuation aspects that cause the Fund to differ significantly from most other open-end registered investment companies, which could result in unexpected and potentially significant accounting, tax and valuation consequences for the Fund and shareholders. Additionally, accounting, tax and valuation practices in this area are still developing, and there may not always be clear agreement among industry participants on the most appropriate approach. This could result in changes over time in the practices applied by the Fund, which in turn could have significant adverse consequences on the Fund and shareholders.

As a C corporation the Fund accrues deferred income taxes for any future tax liability, reflected each day in the Fund’s NAV, associated with its investments in MLPs. Current and deferred tax liabilities, if any, will depend upon net investment gains and losses and realized and unrealized gains and losses on investments, and therefore may vary greatly from year to year and day to day depending on the nature and performance of the Fund’s investments and the general market conditions. The Fund will rely to some extent on information provided by the MLPs, which may not be timely, to estimate deferred tax liability and/or asset balances, subject to the Fund’s modification of those estimates or assumptions as new information becomes available. The daily estimate of the Fund’s deferred tax liability and/or asset balances used to calculate its NAV may vary dramatically from the Fund’s actual tax liability. Actual income tax expense, if any, will be incurred over many years depending upon whether and when investment gains and losses are realized, the then-current basis of the Fund’s assets, prevailing tax rates, and other factors. Upon the sale of an MLP security, the Fund will be liable for previously deferred taxes, if any. As a result, the Fund’s actual tax liability could have a material impact on the Fund’s NAV to the extent that its actual tax liability differs from the estimated deferred tax liability.

Regulatory Risks. Changes in the laws, regulations or related interpretations relating to the Fund’s tax treatment as a C corporation, or its investments in MLPs or other instruments, could increase the Fund’s expenses, reduce its cash distributions, negatively impact the value of an investment in an MLP, or otherwise impact the Fund’s ability to implement its investment strategy. As discussed above, a change in current tax law, or a change in the underlying business mix of a given MLP, could result in the MLP itself being treated as a corporation for U.S. federal income tax purposes, which could result in a requirement to pay federal income tax on its taxable income and have the effect of reducing the amount of cash available for distribution or the value of the Fund’s investment. Due to the heavy state and federal regulations that an MLP’s assets may be subject to, an MLP’s profitability could be adversely impacted by changes in the regulatory environment.
