You’ve worked hard to accumulate your wealth. But just because you are tapping into your assets does not mean you have to tap them out. RBC Managed Payout Solutions can provide the cash flow you need today, while helping to manage the impact to your capital.

Sustainable cash flow

Distributions are reviewed annually and adjusted, if necessary, to provide sustainable and predictable cash flow.

Flexibility and liquidity

Investors have access to their money should unexpected needs arise.

Tax-efficient payouts

Diversification of cash flow sources can result in higher after-tax cash flow relative to investments that pay only interest income.

Growth potential

Equity exposure increases the potential for capital appreciation and helps keep pace with inflation over the long term.

Choice of payout rates

Investors can choose the payout level that fits their lifestyle goals (with 5%, 6% or 7% payout options).

Payout level

How much income do you need to cover day-to-day living and lifestyle expenses?

Payout stability

Can you accept changes, either increases or decreases, in your annual payouts?

Maintenance of principal

Are you willing to erode your initial investment for higher payouts?

The monthly payout (in cents per unit) is a product of multiplying the payout rate by the year-end net asset value (NAV) per unit and dividing by 12. The monthly payout in cents/unit is reset at the beginning of each calendar year. Payout rate may change to reflect market conditions and should not be confused with mutual fund performance or rate of return.

Return of capital and your adjusted cost base

Return of capital (ROC) is a payout from an investment that represents the return of the investor's capital to them by way of a distribution. ROC is used to help generate predictable, monthly cash flows in a tax-efficient manner. A portion of distributions from RBC Managed Payout Solutions may be ROC.
