One of the key decisions you make when you invest in a particular mutual fund is
whether or not you will reinvest distributions owed to you from the fund. Distributions
are composed of interest payments, dividends, or capital gains, depending on the type of
fund. Most people who have their investments inside an RRSP choose to reinvest
Globe Portfolio will automatically record distributions in your portfolio as they occur.
In order for Globe Portfolio to track the value of your portfolio correctly, you must
indicate when you add a fund to your portfolio whether you are reinvesting the
distributions from this fund or not.
You may decide initially not to reinvest distributions, but later decide to reinvest,
or vice versa. Globe Portfolio allows you to change this information for any of your funds
through the Change Reinvestment Option link on the Portfolio Menu page.
