A 2020 capital gains distribution is not expected for the Ecofin Global Renewables Infrastructure Fund (ECOIX/ECOAX).

Returns of capital are non-taxable distributions. The portion of the distribution received by the U.S. shareholder from the Fund that constitutes a return of capital will decrease the U.S. shareholder’s tax basis in his or her Fund shares (but not below zero), which will result in an increase in the amount of gain (or decrease in the amount of loss) that will be recognized by the U.S. shareholder for tax purposes on the later sale of such Fund shares. For a further discussion on the tax treatment of Fund distributions to U.S. shareholders, please see the prospectus or consult your own tax advisors as to the U.S. federal income tax consequences of acquiring, holding and disposing of shares, as well as the effects of state, local and non-U.S. tax laws.
