Frequently Asked Questions

When will monthly cash distributions commence?

Cash distributions to investors are estimated to commence approximately 12-30 months of the final investment closing, however cash distributions may commence within 3 months after acquisitions of an already existing storage facility or within 18 months after the development or retrofit of an existing warehouse into a self storage facility.

How and when do investors receive their tax slips?

On or before March 31 of the year following the announcement of cash distributions in the Trust, investors will be mailed a T3 – Statement of Trust Income Allocations and Designations from NationWide’s back office. Investors will receive a T3 for each year they own Trust units.

When will the liquidity event take place and what will investors receive at that time?

Liquidity event is expected to occur within approximately 5 to 9 years. It is anticipated that investors will receive cash or shares of a publicly traded company, but the terms and timing of a liquidity event (if any) will depend on opportunities available at the time.
