TORONTO, Nov. 27, 2020 /CNW/ - Scotia Global Asset Management today announced the estimated year-end reinvested distributions for the Scotia Strategic ETF Portfolios listed on the TSX for the 2020 tax year. Please note that these are estimated amounts only and have been calculated based upon forward-looking information as of October 30, 2020. As these are estimated amounts, the actual distributions may differ materially from these estimates.
These are estimated distributions of undistributed net income and/or capital gains. These distributions are typically reinvested in additional units of the respective Scotia Strategic ETF Portfolios at year-end, and do not include estimates of any monthly and/or quarterly cash distributions for the remainder of the year. The additional units will be immediately consolidated so that the number of units outstanding following the distribution will equal the number of units outstanding prior to the distribution.
We expect to announce updated estimates of the year-end reinvested distribution amounts (as well as any monthly and/or any quarterly cash distribution amounts, as applicable) on or about December 22, 2020. The record date for the 2020 final year-end distributions will be December 31, 2020, payable on January 6, 2021.
The actual taxable amounts of reinvested and cash distributions for 2020, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. in early 2021. Securityholders can reach out to their brokerage firm for this information.
The estimated reinvested distribution amounts are:
Scotia Strategic ETF Portfolio name
Scotia Strategic Canadian Equity ETF Portfolio
Scotia Strategic U.S. Equity ETF Portfolio
Scotia Strategic International Equity ETF Portfolio
Scotia Strategic Fixed Income ETF Portfolio
