Markets.  As a whole there is a new reality of growth slowing.  We are looking at half the previous growth around the world.  Real returns, however, are going to be only slightly lower on portfolios.  You are better with 8% return and 2% inflation than 10% return and 6% inflation.  There are some defensive sectors that you can hide out in.  Emerging markets are growing twice as fast as developed economies.

Getting an Adviser.  Go to the web site for the Financial Planning Standards Counsel.  Young people may want to consider a Robo advisor.

Caller withdrew from TFSA then the limit was increased.  Can he contribute now?  CRA gets suspicious when you make a withdrawal and then a contribution in the same year.  CRA would prefer you wait until the new calendar year.

RRSP vs. TFSA.  If you are going to be in the same tax bracket when you are working as when you retire, it makes no difference.  If you will be in a lower bracket after retirement then it makes sense to defer tax with the RRSP.  If you are a low income earner you probably want to use the TFSA.

ETFs for long term investing.  Canada is 4% of the world market.  Don’t get over exposed to Canada.  VXC-T and XAW-T are two products with little or no exposure to Canada.  He might tilt towards emerging markets instead.

Is there growth in the near future?  There is nothing to make him think markets in the western world will drop any time soon.  Where is the money going to go?

He would just as soon use a GIC instead of an income ETF because a GIC won’t drop if interest rates go up.

Broad Index REIT ETF.  XRE-T is the largest and best known in Canada.  ZRE-T is equal weight and might a better strategy.

Passive Index ETFs.  Have been around for a while and do a very good job of matching the markets.  VCE-T and VCN-T are examples and he prefers VCN-T.

Moving stocks into the TFSA.  If it is a losing stock, you have to wait 30 days before buying it back but there is no problem if it is a winning stock.

2015-05-27 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart COW-T iShares Global Agriculture ETF

We are always going to have to have food.  We have to grow more food in the next 40 years than we have grown in the last 10,000 years just to feed the global population.  Climate change says that some of the best farmland is going to fry some of our food.  It is a supply and demand story.  It is global.

It is an IMI index, which he likes.  It has large, mid and small cap names.  It is a great way to increase your expected return.  He uses similar funds.

His concern is with the sector.  Financial services make up a ridiculous amount of the TSX.  The product is excellent and does what it is supposed to do, but he would not buy it because financials make up so much of the index.
