When you invest in Wealthsimple's Private Credit fund, you'll receive monthly distributions. These distributions are calculated on the last day of each month and added to your account balance.
By default, we'll automatically reinvest all distributions that you receive in this fund. This means that we use your distributions to buy more units of the fund to help grow your investment over time.
On a quarterly basis, monthly distributions will need to be withheld in the account to cover fees. If you have elected to receive a cash distribution for a month in which fees are expected, you will receive the remaining distribution balance net of fees.
