    Hi,

    Was wondering if any knows if Colonial First State, has put out any guidance on what their distributions might be for June?

    I have some money in their Geared Australian Share fund, which has not paid any dividends this year. So I have know idea what the last distribution might be. Makes tax planning really hard.

    Has anyone heard anything?

    Cheers,
    Ash.

    Here are your options:

    1. Dust off your crystal ball
    2. Contact Colonial directly
    3. Contact your financial adviser

    I reckon Colonial is your best bet.

    Good luck.

    I think CFS have previously posted a preliminary estimate of distributions from their funds (pending updates up to the end of June) ... but I think that's likely to be in a couple of weeks time.

    You could try contacting them directly now to ask for indicative figures.

    I would appreciate it if you post any information you get - I have units in the CFS Aus Geared fund as well :)

    Thanks,

    Sorry, was not able to find anything out. It is a petty they do not give estimates for the EOFY. even two weeks before would be nice.

    Thanks PW,
    I checked that page towards the beginning of the month. And it was not up there. Should have remembered to check it again closer to the end of the month.
