Trez Capital Yield Trust US distributes 100% of its net income annually. Unitholders receive quarterly distributions at a rate of 2.0% on Series I units, payable fifteen days following each calendar quarter end. Distributions are paid in the currency of the units denomination. All residual income attribuable to each unit series is distributed by way of an annual top-up distribution, which is paid in mid-March following the conclusion of the annual audit of the Trust.

Distribution History

In 2019, Trez Capital moved from quarterly to monthly distributions.

1 Based on a weighted average return to Unitholders, this amount is an estimate of the average top up distribution paid. Those invested for less than a full one year period will receive a prorated allocation, and those invested in the dividend reinvestment plan will receive a slightly higher top up due to the effects of compounding.
