Q: If I understand correctly, BNRE shares are exchangeable 1:1 for BN shares. Is there an advantage to do so? Now or at future date and under what circumstances?
As always, thank you for the valuable information you provide.

Q: If one were to sell BNRE or BN at a capital loss and purchase BAM with the proceeds would this stay onside with 30 day rule?

Q: In your response to Randy about converting BNRE to BN you stated

"Under the structure, there is really only an advantage if the price of BNRE is higher than the price of BN and one wants to sell (and get the higher price). Right now there is a 20c difference, not really material enough to make a switch. Dividends and economic exposure are equivalent."

I would have thought that you would only want to convert BNRE to BN if BRNE was tradng LOWER than BN not HIGHER, thus trading a less valuable stock up to a more valuable stock. What am I missing?

Q: I note you recently indicated BNRE is only convertible into BN. I have only had BNRE for a few months. Hoped it would maybe pop 10-15% in 4-6 months. What are the advantages/disadvantages if converting BNRE to BN and would you recommend someone do that now or is there an advantage to wait until sometime next year (or not convert at all) ?

Q: I have been following the Questions and have been a keen reader of the opaque notices and statements from Brookfield . I own units in all the subsidiaries mentioned above too. So I am trying to keep position size of each in mind when I look at the BN holding corp and allocate it to the various sectors, Months ago, before the split you had answered a question confirming that the BAM.A sectoral breakout was 39% financial, 35% RE, 16% industrial, 10% energy?? Does this breakout still apply to BN and/or BAM or is there a new breakout given the spinout of the new corporation.
