TORONTO, Sept. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (TSX:BREA)Brompton Funds Limited (“Brompton” or the “Manager”), the manager of Brompton Global Real Assets Dividend ETF (the “Fund”) announces that a special meeting of the holders of units (“Unitholders”) of the Fund will be held on November 1, 2021 (the “Meeting”).
At the Meeting, Unitholders will be asked to approve a change to the name of the Fund and an amendment to the Fund’s investment objectives (collectively, the “Amendments”).
All costs associated with the implementation of the Amendments, including with respect to the Meeting, will be borne by the Manager.
The Manager believes the Amendments will provide the following benefits:
(a) Fundamental Investment Objectives: Amending the Fund’s investment objectives to include integration of environmental, social and corporate governance (“ESG”) factors as part of the Fund’s investment process will more accurately reflect the Fund’s fundamental investment objectives.
(b) More Accurate Name: Changing the name of the Fund to “Brompton Sustainable Real Assets Dividend ETF” will more accurately describe the Fund’s investment process and its integration of ESG factors.
The Fund’s current monthly distribution is $0.08333 per month ($1.00 per annum) which represents a 4.2% rate based on the September 8, 2021 closing price on the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX”).
Unitholders of record at the close of business on October 1, 2021 will be entitled to vote at the Meeting. If approved, the Amendments are expected to be implemented in November 2021, subject to obtaining the required regulatory approvals and the approval of the TSX. Details of the proposed Amendments will be further outlined in the Fund’s notice of special meeting of Unitholders and management information circular that will be prepared and delivered to Unitholders in connection with the Meeting and will be available under the Fund’s profile on www.sedar.com.
