Healthcare Leaders Income Fund Announces Distribution Amount for Twelve Months Commencing January 29, 2016

OAKVILLE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Jan. 12, 2016) - Healthcare Leaders Income Fund, (TSX:HHL.UN), (the "Fund") announces an expected monthly distribution amount for the following twelve months commencing January 29, 2016 of $0.0583 per Trust Unit ($0.70 per annum). This monthly distribution amount remains the same as the regular monthly distribution paid by the Fund since its inception.

The Fund has been established to provide Unitholders with exposure in an equally-weighted portfolio of Equity Securities of 20 Healthcare Leaders from the Healthcare Leaders Investable Universe that have a market capitalization of at least $5 billion at the time of investment and meet certain investment characteristics.

The Fund's investment objectives are to provide Unitholders with:

  1. the opportunity for capital appreciation;
  2. monthly cash distributions; and
  3. lower overall volatility of the Portfolio returns than would otherwise be experienced by owning the Equity Securities of the Healthcare Leaders directly.
