Tip: Understanding distribution dates

Ex-date

This is the date (being one business day prior to the record date) that the fund trades without an entitlement to the relevant distribution. In other words, an investor must own units in the fund before this date in order to be entitled to the distribution. As is the case with shares, you can expect the fund’s unit price to drop by roughly the amount of the distribution on the ex-date.

Record date

This is the date determined by BetaShares on which the registrar records who is eligible to receive the distribution. As mentioned, an investor must own units in the fund before the ex-date to be entitled to receive the distribution.

Payment date

This is the day on which the distribution is paid to eligible investors.

About Distribution Reinvestment Plans (DRP)

Each BetaShares fund offers a Distribution Reinvestment Plan (“DRP”). A DRP allows you to automatically reinvest any distributions in additional units in the fund. You can opt in to a DRP in full, or choose partial participation, where some of your distribution is reinvested and you take the balance in cash (in the proportions specified by you).

If you choose to participate fully in the DRP, all distributions will be reinvested brokerage-free in additional units.

Explore BetaShares Guide to DRP to learn more.

Also you can find the latest information regarding DRP plans for BetaShares funds here.

 

Opting in to DRP

To opt in to DRP via your account with Link Market Services, go to the Payments & Tax in the menu. Select “Reinvestment Plan” (or “DRP” if accessing via mobile) to manage your participation in the DRP.  Joint holders will need to print, complete and return the form available online.


FAQs

Understanding Distribution Reinvestment Plans (DRP)

Instead of receiving distributions as cash, distributions are used to buy more units in the fund.
A DRP, or Distribution Reinvestment Plan, can be an excellent way to compound the value of your investment overtime, which may appeal to those with longer investment timeframes, or those seeking growth over income from that particular investment.
If the BetaShares fund is eligible for DRP, you can elect to participate in a DRP for some, or all of the distribution amount.
Read the fund’s product disclosure statement (PDS) to see if DRP is available.

If available for the fund, investors can opt-in to the DRP through the Link Market Services Investor Portal. Simply log in to your account and update your DRP preference (partial or full) next to each fund you’re wishing to participate in the DRP.

Distributions

Many of our funds pay distributions monthly, quarterly or annually. These will typically be passed on to investors in cash or reinvested in the fund if participating in a DRP. To see a fund’s distribution frequency, view the product disclosure statement (PDS).

To the extent that the underlying holdings of the fund receive franking credits, these credits will normally be passed on to investors.

Franking credits levels are reported in the annual tax statements regardless of whether you take your dividends in cash or participate in a DRP.

BetaShares recommends that you speak to your tax adviser about your investment.
