Market. It is really, really tough to find yield, and he is telling people that they have to look at things like emerging market bonds, because traditional bonds are just not paying anything. He wouldn’t be surprised if a person investing in traditional bonds, actually realized a negative yield of return over the next half decade or decade. The risk/reward ratio is clearly tilted in favour of reward. Virtually all of the governments globally are not likely to go bankrupt, so in terms of the solvency of the underlying debt issuer, there is no problem. He wouldn’t be surprised that if a generation from now that we could still be talking and waiting for an interest rate hike to normalize. Ultimately, if you are a dividend investor, you are investing in stocks. That is a slippery slope and suggests you deal with these with caution.

Explain ETFs. If you understand what a mutual fund is, an ETF is a hybrid between a mutual fund and a stock. You get the diversification of a mutual fund, as well as the ease of ownership and benefits. They trade like a stock and you can Buy them like a stock. ETFs are generally a fair bit cheaper than mutual funds.

Behavioural Finance? We are all guilty of heuristics, basically shortcuts. Making quick, snap decisions, as opposed to longer term stop, wait, being thoughtful. If you can become more self-aware of the biases that you might have, hopefully you can rein them in a bit and do better.

Low Cost Mutual Funds? If you can find a good, low cost mutual fund, go to town. He has no problems with mutual funds, his concern are the costs.

Optimum number of holdings for a seven-figure portfolio? He doesn’t know if there is an optimal number, but it is a big number, whatever it is. Why he recommends ETFS or mutual funds is that most of them will have literally hundreds of holdings in one name. Therefore, if you have 6 ETFS in your portfolio, even if it is a 7-digit portfolio, you literally have over 1000 names. You can’t reliably replicate that using individual securities.

Gold. He moved most of his clients to having a 4% stake in gold at the beginning of the year. Gold hit its bottom at around the beginning of the year, and has been moving up ever since. He likes it as a diversifier, and believes you should have a little bit, 3%-5%.

2016-09-26 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart VEE-T Vanguard MSCI Emerg. Mkt. ETF

Feels people should be invested a) outside of Canada (emerging markets) and b) broad diversification with low costs.

2016-09-26 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart XEM-T iShares MSCI Emerging Markets

(A Top Pick Oct 20/15. Up 7.55%.) A broad market exposure to emerging markets globally, but with a fair bit of extra jazz because it tilts towards foreign companies. For those people who can handle a little more volatility, but want emerging markets, this one works very well.

2016-09-26 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart XID-T iShares CNX Nifty India

Although he believes in “emerging markets” as a broad play, for those people who want an individual country, he would recommend India. This is a part of the world that is growing at a really, really breakneck pace, compared to what we are used to in the West.

2016-09-26 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart XIU-T iUnits S&P/TSX 60 ETF

His bias is for more diversification, foreign markets as opposed to Canadian markets. This is the largest ETF in Canada. It will have lots of dividend payers, so it will be fairly stable. Reasonably cheap. This is fine.

2016-09-26 BUY Must be logged in to use chart XWD-T iShares MSCI World Index Fund

Global ETF for an RESP? An all-world ETF. You are buying large cap stocks from around the world and getting them from 16-17 countries giving you global diversification. Low cost. Very safe way to go.

2016-09-26 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart ZEF-T BMO Emerging Mkts Bond Hedged CAD

If you believe that you want to have bonds, or need to have them, emerging markets will give you a bit of a yield that will give you more jazz than what you would otherwise have.

2016-09-26 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart ZGQ-T BMO MSCI All Country World High Quality

(A Top Pick Oct 20/15. Up 9.52%.) Most people have way too much money invested in Canada, and need to look for ways to get money outside of Canada. This is a way to get exposure from all the stocks globally. Canada is only a little over 3% of the world’s stock market capitalization. This gives you the other 97% with a focus on quality. He thinks this will do well relative to other investments, but not all the future years will be as positive as this has been this year.

2016-09-26 BUY Must be logged in to use chart ZID-T BMO India Equity Hedged to CAD ETF

Very similar to iShares CNX Nifty India (XID-T) and they are interchangeable. He likes them both. India is a very good way to get the growth you need. (See Top Picks.)

2016-09-26 PAST TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart ZUE-T BMO S&P 500 Hedge to CAD Index

(A Top Pick Oct 20/15. Up 6.81%.) The US stock market is about half of the world’s stock market capitalization, and he likes this one because it is currency hedged. Had felt that the Cdn$ was probably as low as it was going to go relative to the US$, and as the Cdn$ rose in value, you would need a hedge to minimize the losses.
