OAKVILLE, ON, Dec. 15, 2021 /CNW/ - Harvest Portfolios Group
Inc. ("Harvest") announces that effective January 1, 2022, Brand Leaders Income Fund (TSX:
HBL.UN) and Australian REIT Income Fund (TSX: HRR.UN) will
discontinue paying quarterly servicing fees which are currently
paid to registered investment dealers that have investors that hold
units of HBL.UN and Class A units of HRR.UN. The final quarterly
servicing fee for HBL.UN and HRR.UN will be paid to registered
investment dealers on or about January 10,
2022. Harvest believes that discontinuing servicing fee
payments will align HBL.UN and HRR .UN with the majority of
closed-end funds which do not pay servicing fees. Harvest expects a
reduction to the management expense ratio going forward for HBL.UN
and HRR.UN as a result of discontinuing the quarterly servicing
