Securities regulations do not allow us to report performance for an exchange-traded fund that has been available for less than one year. This fund was launched October 19, 2017.

† Distributions by the RBC ETF that are not paid in cash but result in additional units of the RBC ETF. These distributions should be accounted for by investors for tax purposes by adding the distribution amount to the adjusted cost base of the units held.

†† The exact tax treatment of the distributions for a calendar year is calculated after the RBC ETF's tax year-end. As a result, investors will receive an official tax statement from their broker detailing the type of income they have to report for tax purposes for the entire year and not for each distribution.

Commissions, management fees and expenses all may be associated with investments in exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Please read the prospectus or Fund Facts document before investing. ETFs are not guaranteed, their values change frequently and past performance may not be repeated. ETF units are bought and sold at market price on a stock exchange and brokerage commissions will reduce returns. RBC ETFs do not seek to return any predetermined amount at maturity. Index returns do not represent RBC ETF returns. RBC ETFs are managed by RBC Global Asset Management Inc., an indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Royal Bank of Canada. The indicated rates of return are the historical total returns for the periods including changes in unit value and reinvestment of all distributions and do not take into account sales, redemption, commission charges or income taxes payable by any unitholder that would have reduced returns.

The RBC ETFs referred to herein have been developed solely by RBC GAM.

Solactive Canada Bank Yield Index, Solactive U.S. Banks Yield Index and Solactive U.S. Banks Yield (CAD Hedged) Index are calculated and published by Solactive AG. The RBC ETF referred to herein is not sponsored, promoted, sold or supported by Solactive AG. Solactive AG does not offer any express or implicit guarantee or assurance regarding the results to be obtained from the use of the index or index price nor does Solactive AG make any representation regarding the advisability of investing in the ETF.
