RBC Global Asset Management Inc. announces final details on maturity of RBC 
Target 2013 Corporate Bond Index ETF 
TORONTO, Sept. 13, 2013 /CNW/ - RBC Global Asset Management Inc. (RBC GAM) 
today announced final details regarding the scheduled maturity of RBC Target 
2013 Corporate Bond Index ETF (TSX: RQA). 
As announced earlier this year, RBC Target 2013 Corporate Bond Index ETF will 
mature effective at the close of business on Friday, November 22, 2013. As a 
result, no direct subscriptions for units of RQA will be accepted after the 
close of business today, Friday September 13, 2013. 
Redemption requests for the RBC Target 2013 Corporate Bond Index ETF are 
expected to be accepted until the close of business on Friday November 15, 
2013. RQA is anticipated to be voluntarily delisted from the TSX, at the 
request of RBC GAM, following the close of business on or about Tuesday, 
November 19, 2013. All units still held by investors following delisting will 
be subject to mandatory redemption on the maturity date of Friday, November 
22, 2013. 
"This is the first RBC Target Maturity Corporate Bond ETF to mature, and while 
this type of fund is still relatively new to Canadian investors, it has 
demonstrated the potential to deliver attractive income to meet investor needs 
over a defined period of time," said Mark Neill, head of RBC ETFs. 
The proceeds from RQA may be invested into a subsequent maturity of an RBC 
Target Maturity Corporate Bond ETF or utilized in a ladder strategy to help 
manage interest rate and reinvestment risk. 
The suite of RBC Target Maturity Corporate Bond ETFs includes nine corporate 
bond ETFs with maturities spanning from 2013 to 2021. These ETFs provide 
targeted maturity exposure, enabling investors to build customized fixed 
income portfolios tailored to specific investment needs. 
Unlike traditional ETFs, which have a perpetual life, target-maturity ETFs 
have a specified maturity date established when the ETF is launched. When the 
ETF reaches the maturity date, the ETF's final net asset value (NAV) is 
returned to the current unit holders. 
A target maturity ETF's portfolio contains fixed income securities that mature 
throughout its stated maturity year. This structure results in a duration 
profile similar to that of an individual bond, where the ETF's duration should 
decline as it approaches maturity, reducing sensitivity to interest rate
