TORONTO, Dec. 31, 2020 /CNW/ - RBC Global Asset Management Inc. ("RBC GAM Inc.") today announced the final 2020 annual reinvested capital gains distribution amounts for unitholders of RBC ETFs.

RBC (CNW Group/RBC Global Asset Management Inc.)

The annual capital gains distributions for the RBC ETFs generally represent net realized capital gains within the RBC ETFs and are typically not paid in cash, but are reinvested in additional units of the respective RBC ETF. The additional units will be immediately consolidated with the previously outstanding units such that the number of outstanding units following the distribution will equal the number of units outstanding prior to the distribution. The reinvested capital gains distributions will increase the unitholder's adjusted cost base for the respective RBC ETF.

Unitholders of record as of December 31, 2020 will receive the 2020 annual reinvested capital gains distribution amounts. The taxable amounts of reinvested and cash distributions for 2020, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to brokers (through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc.) in early 2021.

The 2020 annual reinvested capital gains distribution amounts per unit for the RBC ETFs are as follows:
