Mackenzie Investments Announces Estimated Year-End Reinvested Distributions for its Exchange Traded Funds

TORONTO – December 13, 2019 – Mackenzie Investments today announced the estimated year-end reinvested distributions for its exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”) that trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”) and Aequitas NEO Exchange (“NEO”) for the 2019 tax year. Please note that these are estimated amounts only as of November 25, 2019. The actual reinvested distributions may differ materially from these estimates.

These are estimated distributions of undistributed net income and/or capital gains. The distributions will be reinvested in additional units of the respective ETFs and do not include estimates of ongoing monthly, quarterly, semi-annual or annual cash distribution amounts. The additional units will be immediately consolidated with the units previously outstanding, so that the number of units outstanding following the distribution will equal the number of units outstanding prior to the distribution.

Mackenzie Investments expects to announce the final year-end reinvested distribution amounts for its ETFs on or about December 23, 2019. The record date for these distributions is December 31, 2019. The actual taxable amounts distributed by the ETFs in 2019, including the tax characteristics of these amounts, will be reported to brokers through CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. in early 2020.

Mackenzie Investments Introduces Canada’s First Local Currency Emerging Markets Bond ETF

Mackenzie Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond Index ETF provides investors with opportunity to access growth in emerging markets through local currencies.

TORONTO – October 24, 2019 – Mackenzie Investments today announced the launch of Mackenzie Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond Index ETF, a new exchange traded fund (ETF) which seeks to provide Canadian investors with the opportunity to access the strong growth and diversification benefits of investing in emerging markets.

This new ETF is the first of its kind in Canada and carries a management fee of 0.45 per cent- which is currently one of the lowest among Canadian-domiciled emerging markets bond ETFs.  Further, the ETF provides strong currency diversification opportunities.

"Improved debt dynamics within emerging countries, and a positive long-term outlook for emerging markets as a whole, combine to make this asset class  a particularly attractive one for investors seeking to diversify and grow their portfolios," said Michael Cooke, Senior VP and Head of ETFs, Mackenzie Investments.

Mr. Cooke noted that Mackenzie Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond Index ETF will provide investors with strong investment opportunities given that almost 90 per cent of emerging market bonds (approximately US$21.6 trillion) are denominated in local currency. 

Mackenzie Emerging Markets Local Currency Bond Index ETF will seek to replicate the performance of the Solactive EM Local Currency Government Bond Select NTR Index.  It is the latest addition to the firm's comprehensive suite of Active, Strategic Beta and Traditional Index ETFs which offer investors and advisors innovative choices for building diversified portfolios.
