Portfolio Strategy

The BMO MSCI Canada ESG Leaders Index ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the MSCI Canada ESG Leaders Index, net of expenses. The ETF invests in Canadian companies that have higher MSCI ESG ratings than their peers. The ETF invests in and holds the Constituent Securities of the Index in the same proportion as they are reflected in the Index.

Benchmark Info

The MSCI Canada ESG Leaders Index is based on the MSCI Canada Index, which includes large and mid-capitalization stocks across Canada. The Index aims to capture the performance of securities that have been assigned higher ESG ratings by MSCI relative to their peers and targets 50% of the market capitalization within each sector. The Index excludes securities of companies that earn significant revenues from tobacco, alcohol, gambling, conventional weapons and civilian firearms, any controversial weapons, significant generation of nuclear power as well as companies involved in severe business controversies. The portfolio is weighted by market capitalization and is re-balanced quarterly.

Tax & Distributions

Distribution History

Each BMO ETF will distribute net taxable income to investors at least once a year. A BMO ETF will have taxable income if the income generated (for example interest, dividend, capital gains, etc.) by the securities within the BMO ETF is greater than the expenses of the BMO ETF. The distributions will either be paid in cash or reinvested in the BMO ETF at the discretion of the manager. The future distribution dates for BMO ETFs may change at any time and whether or not a distribution occurs will depend on the tax characteristics of the underlying investments.

The following table lists historical distributions and includes information about the frequency dollar value and tax composition of the distribution. The tax composition of the BMO ETF distribution will be determined on a yearly basis and will only be available after the BMO ETFs tax year. This information will be reported in an official tax receipt provided to investors by their broker.

The exact tax treatment of the distributions for a calendar year is calculated after the BMO ETF's tax year-end. As a result investors will receive an official tax statement from their broker detailing the type of income they have to report for tax purposes for the entire year and not for each distribution.
