As an income investor I prefer investments that pay monthly distributions. For those that like exchange traded funds that trade on the TSX I suggest iShares.
Cash distributions for the eleven iShares funds listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange which pay on a monthly basis. Unitholders of record on the second to last business day of the month will receive cash distributions payable on last business day of the month. Details of the “per unit” distribution amounts are as follows:
