Portfolio Strategy

BMO MSCI Europe High Quality Hedged to CAD Index ETF has been designed to replicate, to the extent possible, the performance of the MSCI Europe Quality 100% Hedged to CAD Index, net of expenses. The Fund invests in European equity markets, while screening for high return on equity (ROE), stable year-over-year earnings growth and low financial leverage. The Fund may also invest in or hold securities intended to replicate the performance of the Index. The foreign currency exposure is hedged back to the Canadian dollar.

Benchmark Info

MSCI Europe Quality 100% Hedged to CAD Index (“Index”) is based on the MSCI Europe Index, its parent index, which includes large and mid cap stocks across the Developed Markets (DM) countries in Europe. The Index aims to capture the performance of quality growth stocks by identifying stocks with high quality scores based on three main fundamental variables: high return on equity (ROE), stable year-over-year earnings growth and low financial leverage. All securities eligible for inclusion in the Index are weighted by the product of their market cap weight in the parent index and their quality score. Issuer weights are capped at 5%. The Index is rebalanced semi-annually, as of the close of the last business day of November and May.

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.

Ex-Dividend Date Record Date Pay Date Cash Distribution Per Unit Reinvested Distribution Per Unit

Distributions by the BMO ETF that are not paid in cash should be accounted for by investors for tax purposes by adding the distribution amount to the adjusted cost base of the units held.

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.
