TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2020 /CNW/ - CIBC (TSX: CM) (NYSE: CM) – CIBC Asset Management Inc. today announced the estimated 2020 annual reinvested capital gains distributions for the CIBC ETFs and ETF Series of the CIBC Fixed Income Pools. The distribution estimates are based on information available as of October 30, 2020, and are subject to change prior to the final distribution.
These estimates are for the year-end capital gains distributions only, and do not include cash distributions for December 2020.

The final year-end capital gains distribution amounts, as well as the cash distribution amounts for December 2020, are expected to be announced on December 23, 2020.
