U.S. Dollar Funds



Overview – Understanding the U.S. dollar option

U.S. dollar priced funds should be considered for the convenience of clients who want to spend U.S dollars.

Features of holding U.S. dollar priced funds:

·         There is no investment merit to holding the USD-priced over the CAD-priced version of the same fund as purchases and redemptions are handled in U.S. dollars.

·         For any fund that has a USD option, the Fund units are part of the same pool of assets as the CAD priced Fund units. For USD-priced units, we take the CAD price and convert that price to USD.
