Brompton Mutual Funds Limited Provides Update on 2016 Federal Budget Proposal Impacting Mutual Fund Corporations

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 14, 2016) -


Brompton Mutual Funds Limited (the "Corporation") would like to advise investors in Brompton Resource Class and Brompton Dividend & Income Class (the "Funds") of proposed changes to the ability of shareholders to switch between the Funds on a tax-deferred basis.

Currently shareholders of mutual funds that are classes of a mutual fund corporation, like the Funds, may switch between the classes without resulting in a taxable disposition. However, as part of the 2016 Federal Budget, the government has proposed to eliminate the ability of shareholders to switch between share classes on a tax-deferred basis after September 2016 where the classes derive their value from different portfolios. This does not apply to switches between different series of the same class.

The Corporation will continue to monitor and assess any guidance regarding the implementation of the proposed changes. Investors should consult with their financial advisor about their investment options and how these changes may impact them.
