Purpose Investments Inc. Announces Estimated Annual Capital Gains Distributions

Purpose Investments Inc. (“Purpose”) today announced the estimated annual capital gains distributions for its open-end exchange-traded funds and closed-end funds (“the Funds”) for the 2019 tax year end. The estimated distributions represent estimated capital gains realized by the Funds during the year.

The estimated annual capital gain distribution for Purpose Emerging Markets Dividend Fund will be paid in cash. The estimated annual capital gain distribution for U.S. Banks Income & Growth Fund will not be paid in cash, but will be reinvested in additional units and reported as taxable with the resulting units immediately consolidated so that the number of units held by each investor will not change.
