FTN.PR.A To Reset To 9.25% for One Year

Quadravest has announced:

Financial 15 Split Corp. (the “Company”) is pleased to announce the Preferred Share dividend rate for the fiscal year beginning December 1, 2023, will increase by 1.75% over the current rate. Monthly payments to FTN.PR.A will be $0.07708 per share for an annual yield of 9.25% on their $10 redemption value.

The Company invests in an actively managed, high quality portfolio consisting of 15 financial services companies made up of Canadian and U.S. issuers as follows:

Bank of Montreal National Bank of Canada Bank of America Corp.
The Bank of Nova Scotia Manulife Financial Corporation Citigroup Inc.
Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce Sun Life Financial Inc. Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
Royal Bank of Canada Great-West Lifeco Inc. JP Morgan Chase & Co.
The Toronto-Dominion Bank CI Financial Corp. Wells Fargo & Co.

As I stated when reporting last year’s reset:

I must say, I am growing to dislike these annual resets intensely. The minimum rate on these resets is only 5.5% and apart from this the company has full discretion. A prudent analysis must therefore assume that next year the rate will reset to 5.5% but there is every possibility, of course, that it will not. So refusing to buy these things might result in leaving money on the table. All in all, though, assuming the worst is always the way to go in securities analysis!

FTN.PR.A matures 2025-12-1 and has a NAVPU of 16.82 as of 2023-9-15.

Thanks to Assiduous Reader newbiepref for bringing this to my attention!
