TORONTO, Dec. 30, 2019 /CNW/ - Scotia Global Asset Management today announced the final year-end cash distributions for the Scotia Strategic ETF Portfolios listed on the TSX for the 2019 tax year. Unitholders of record on December 31, 2019 will receive cash distributions for the respective Scotia Strategic ETF Portfolios payable on January 6, 2020.

It is expected that these portfolios will cease to be financial institutions on December 31, 2019, when, not more than 50% of each portfolio will be held by one or more financial institutions.
The actual taxable amounts of cash distributions for 2019, including the tax characteristics of the distributions, will be reported to CDS Clearing and Depository Services Inc. in early 2020. Shareholders can contact their brokerage firm for this information.
