1This is the gross weighted average of the yield to maturity of the individual bond holdings in an ETF and is based on the Net Asset Value (NAV). It does not include fees or expenses.
2A price adjustment is made to the weighted average yield to maturity depending on whether the purchase price is above or below the Net Asset Value (NAV) shown. A purchase price that is greater than the NAV will effectively reduce the weighted average yield to maturity, while a purchase price that is less than the NAV will effectively increase the weighted average yield to maturity. The price adjustment is an approximation.
Price Adjustment = [(Purchase Price-NAV) / (NAV * Weighted Average Duration)] x 100
3The price-adjusted gross weighted average yield to maturity is the sum of the gross weighted average yield to maturity (1) and the price adjustment (2).
4The net estimated yield to maturity is an approximation of the weighted average yield to maturity, taking into consideration the price adjustment and MER.
Net Estimated Yield to Maturity = Gross Weighted Average Yield to Maturity - Price Adjustment - MER
