Distribution Amounts

A distribution is profit earned by a fund and paid to investors, and may include income such as interest, dividends and realised capital gains.

A distribution is expressed as a cents per unit amount. For example, if your fund pays a distribution of two cents per unit, and you hold 1000 units, your total distribution payment would be $20 ($0.02 x 1000).

When a distribution is paid, the unit price of the fund will fall by an equivalent amount. To learn more about the impact of distributions on unit prices, click here.
