TORONTO, March 18, 2021 /CNW/ - RBC Global Asset Management Inc. ("RBC GAM Inc.") today announced that RBC Target 2021 Corporate Bond Index ETF (TSX:RQI) will mature on Friday, November 12, 2021 (the "maturity date").
Unlike traditional exchange-traded funds ("ETFs"), which have a perpetual life, target maturity ETFs have a specified maturity date that is established when the ETF is launched and disclosed in its prospectus. When the ETF reaches its maturity date, the ETF's final net asset value ("NAV") is returned to the current unitholders.
A target maturity ETF's portfolio contains securities that mature throughout its stated maturity year. This structure results in a duration profile similar to that of an individual bond, where the ETF's duration can be expected to decline as it approaches maturity, reducing sensitivity to interest rate changes. These ETFs do not seek to return any predetermined amount at maturity.
The RBC family of Target Maturity Corporate Bond ETFs includes seven ETFs with maturities ranging from 2021 to 2027.
RBC GAM Inc. will issue an additional press release on or about the maturity date confirming final details of the maturity. Further details of the maturity will be mailed to unitholders of RBC Target 2021 Corporate Bond Index ETF at least 60 days prior to the maturity date.
