Flexible Payout Service

Income on your terms

As circumstances change, so do the cash flow needs of investors. With Mackenzie Investments’ Flexible Payout Service (FPS) investors can receive a predictable, customizable and tax-efficient cash flow from their investments.

Here's how it works

Investors select a fund series that pays a regular monthly distribution at a fixed percentage rate (e.g. Series T5). They then choose to receive the cash payout in either:

  • A specific dollar amount (e.g., $500/month) or
  • At a percentage rate (e.g., 3.5%)

If the amount chosen is less than the regular amount distributed by the fund series, the remaining cash will be automatically reinvested.

Using Mackenzie Investments’ Flexible Payout Service

  • Flexible Payout Service can be used in a nominee account, in a Mackenzie Investments-administered non-registered account, and in a Mackenzie Investments-administered TFSA.
  • Cash payouts at a rate that exceeds the rate of return on an investment will decrease the value of the investment.
