Management fees for RBC Target Maturity Corporate Bond ETFs were reduced from 0.30% to 0.25% on Jan. 15, 2014. The RBC Target 2017 Corporate Bond Index ETF had its management fee reduced to 0.20% effective Jan. 1, 2017 in accordance with its prospectus.

Securities regulations do not allow us to report performance, including yield, for an exchange-traded fund that has been available for less than one year.

† 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.
