Frequently Asked Questions
Will I receive dividends?
Some funds distribute dividends while some funds do not. Funds that distribute dividends either do so in cash value or units. Dividends issued in cash value can be paid out and credited to your account.* If you do not opt for a payout option, the dividends will be re-invested by default.
Dividends that are issued in units will not be received in cash. In this situation, if you require a cash payout, you may sell some or all of these units depending on your requirements.
The declaration of distribution is at the sole discretion of the Fund Manager and is not guaranteed.
* If you opt for the dividend payout option, dividends will be credited according to the fund source of the investment. For example, paid out dividends for investments under the CPFIS will be credited back to your CPF account.
