ETFs are known for being light on capital gains compared to mutual funds due to their in-kind redemption function. However, despite a fund manager’s best efforts, investors can nonetheless have to contend with at least some capital gains.

Below is a list of issuers’ estimated and actual capital gains on their funds for 2016. This year’s list includes a noticeable number of currency-hedged, minimum-volatility and fixed-income ETFs.

Issuers should feel free to email Heather Bell at ETF.com ([email protected]) with any updates.
