Incorporation: The RBC ETF was established under the laws of the Province of Ontario pursuant to an amended and restated master declaration of trust dated as of January 6, 2016 executed by RBC Global Asset Management Inc., as trustee and manager.
Manager and Trustee: RBC Global Asset Management Inc.
Transfer Agent & Registrar: Computershare Investor Services Inc. at its principal offices in Toronto.
Fiscal Year End: December 31
Nature of Business: The RBC ETF seeks to provide unitholders with exposure primarily to the performance of a diversified portfolio of Canadian corporate and government bonds, divided into five groupings with staggered maturities from one to five years, that will provide regular income while preserving capital.
Distributions: Cash distributions on Units of the RBC ETF are expected to be made monthly. Distributions on Units are expected to consist primarily of ordinary income sourced from interest payments received or accrued by the RBC ETF, but may also include net realized capital gains and returns of capital, in any case, less the expenses of the fund. To the extent that the expenses of the RBC ETF exceed the income generated by the RBC ETF in any given month, a monthly distribution may not be paid.

For each taxation year, the RBC ETF will ensure that the net income and net realized capital gains of the fund have been distributed to such an extent that the RBC ETF will not be liable for ordinary income tax thereon. To the extent that any RBC ETF has not distributed the full amount of its net income or net capital gains in cash in any taxation year, the difference between such amount and the amount actually distributed by the RBC ETF in cash will be paid as a “reinvested distribution”. Reinvested distributions will be reinvested automatically in additional Units of the RBC ETF at a price equal to the Net Asset Value per Unit of the RBC ETF and the Units of that class will be immediately consolidated such that the number of outstanding Units following the distribution will equal the number of Units outstanding prior to the distribution.
Sponsor: Not Applicable
Initial Issuance of Units: Pursuant to the terms of the Prospectus, Units will be issued and sold on a continuous basis and there will be no maximum number of Units that may be issued. Units sold in connection with the Offering for the RBC ETF will amount to 100,000 CAD Units at a price of $20 per Unit.
