Is TD E-series still available?
That’s all, folks. Although 2021 again proved the TD e-Series funds can (in theory, anyway) be a good alternative to ETFs, recent changes in the industry are making them increasingly unattractive. As a result, the current edition of my model portfolios no longer includes the e-Series.
What happened to TD E-Series funds?
In 2019, TD announced some changes to its line of index mutual funds (i.e. e-Series Funds). Of note is that the e-Series funds now hold TD-specific ETFs, track slightly different indices, can now be purchased through other online brokerages, and are slightly cheaper than before.

What are TD E Series funds?

Do TD E Series pay dividends?
Despite the TD rep’s wishful thinking, you can’t escape paying taxes on dividends by reinvesting them instead of taking them in cash. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could. As we’ve said, the ETF version of this fund paid a cash distribution of about $0.47 per unit last year, which works out to a yield of about 2.5%.
