Investing outside a registered plan often comes with an unwelcome tax bill. Scotia Corporate Class Funds offer tax-advantaged distributions as well as predictable monthly cash flow to help meet ongoing income needs.
Taxes can take a bite out of your savings – especially if distributions are in the form of higher-taxed interest income. Scotia Corporate Class Funds are structured to distribute tax-advantaged capital gains dividends and ordinary Canadian dividends to shareholders when necessary.
Return of capital (ROC) represents the return of a portion of an investor’s original investment (i.e. capital) and is not immediately taxable. For distributions that include ROC, an investor’s adjusted cost base is reduced, which may in turn result in a larger capital gain when the fund is sold.

Here's three ways Scotia Corporate Class Funds can help build and protect your wealth:
Diversify & Rebalance without immediate tax implications
New job, promotion, marriage, inheritance, retirement…a lot can happen during your lifetime. As your financial situation changes, you may need to rebalance your portfolio to reflect your new goals and needs. A key benefit of Scotia Corporate Class Funds is the ability to switch from one fund to another without triggering an immediate taxable event.
Note: Tax is deferred, but not eliminated. Investors should seek tax advice for their individual circumstances.
Smaller Potential Distributions
To help lower your immediate taxable income, Scotia Corporate Class Funds offer the potential for smaller taxable distributions. When distributions are paid they may be in a form that is taxed at a lower rate than interest income.
Tax-Deferred Growth to Maximize Your Savings
With tax-deferred switching and smaller potential distributions, you keep more of your money in your portfolio – meaning you have more money compounding over time.

Distributions are not guaranteed and may change at any time at the discretion of the fund's Manager. If distributions paid by the fund are greater than the performance of the fund, distributions paid may include a return of capital and an investor's original investment will shrink. A return of capital is not taxable to the investor, but will generally reduce the adjusted cost base of the securities held for tax purposes. If the adjusted cost base falls below zero, investors will realize capital gains equal to the amount below zero. Distributions are automatically reinvested unless an investor elects to receive them in cash. Investors should not confuse a fund's distribution rate with its performance, rate of return or yield.
