How do distributions work?
Some of our funds pay distributions at set intervals. Distributions are a way for some of the fund’s returns to be paid out to investors, in the form of cash payments. The portfolio managers have set the distribution amounts at levels they feel are sustainable, given the current and expected future environment. The amount paid to each investor is based on the number of cents per unit held.
If you are investing into a fund that pays regular distributions but opt not to receive the cash, it will instead be reinvested and used to purchase additional units in that fund.
Distributions from the funds are non-taxable events and are not treated as income for tax purposes.
