I'm Invested in a PMA

Dividends

Yes, your InvestSMART PMA will receive dividends from the holdings.

Yes, you will receive the franking you're entitled to once you submit your tax return.

InvestSMART does not participate in dividend reinvestment plans. This means that the dividends from the holdings won't automatically be re-invested in the same holding they originated from.

When the dividends from your holdings are paid, they will go into the cash component of your account. When the cash component is out of balance, the default setting is for the cash to be invested across the other holdings.

Clients can elect to have the dividends paid out instead in a monthly income sweep. At the end of each month, all dividends and interest received by your account will be tallied and paid out to the bank account you nominated in your application form.

You can view dividends via the Dividends & Interest tab and Deposits & Withdrawals tab.
