Per my conversation with the fund manager, yes, RSP does have some capital gains.

They will try to manage them either thru "in kind" distributions or perhaps offseting them with cap losses.

I would note that RSP is far more tax-efficeint than most mutual funds just less as efficient a more conventional ETF.

ONe reason this fund as outperformed the S&P recently is the fact that it behaves more like a Mid-cap.

Perhaps this is more suited for qualified accounts, nonetheless it is a product which interests me.
