Personal Finances. A recent research report showed that typical investors lagged their benchmarks by 3%-3.5% over all time frames, such as 1, 3, 10, 20, 30 years. We need to be more mindful of what is called behavioural finance, behavioural quirks, little decisions that people make that are knee-jerk reactions that seem to make sense. If we stop, step back, and look at it dispassionately, we realize that it was not a very good thing to do. We are all guilty of overconfidence, men especially. People who try to time the market overwhelmingly fail. You need to be able to do a really good self-assessment in terms of anchoring. A lot of trade-offs being done are not rational. His one recommendation to investors, especially financial advisors, is to Google “behavioural finance”, learn about it, and learn what the ticks are.

Investing in volatility ETF’s as a swing trade? Volatility trades are the sorts of things we have to think of. People are coming up with products that give you a chance to express an opinion with regards to your risk profile/preference. There are products that are more volatile than the market that are expecting to get a higher return, products that track the market and have the same risk in the same expected return, and products that have lower volatility. In other words, you have a choice.

Solvency of lifecos and their annuities? You should be entirely comfortable with the solvency of lifecos. Some of them have been around for well over 100 years, and there is nothing coming down the pipe that they haven’t seen many times before. The great thing about an annuity is that you can’t outlive it.

Moving Averages to buy ETF’s? There is no reason why you can’t use these. ETF’s have the same attributes as a mutual fund. He doesn’t use them.

Moving from mutual funds to ETF’s. Best way to set up a portfolio? Look at your mutual funds and what you already hold. Hopefully that will be a good representation of what your risk profile is. Then try to find an ETF that will have a similar mandate.

An ETF to cover the entire commodity area? There is no single broad commodity ETF. You might want to mix and match with different commodity ETF’s, such as water, agriculture, infrastructure, base metals, gold and energy. They are going to be more volatile, but they have been beaten up and are still pretty cheap.

Emerging markets on a rate hike? There is no doubt in his mind that on a rate hike, the emerging markets would take a dip. He generally does not try to time things on that kind of a micro level.

2016-07-04 DON'T BUY Must be logged in to use chart CJP-T iShares Japan C$ Hedge ETF

Japan has gone through 25 years that has been lost. They literally lost a quarter century. The Nikkei hit its peak at the end of 1989. Given how their society is aging, and that they can’t do any more in terms of urbanotics(?) and stimulus, we are at the point where you just have to tough it out. He is opposed to anything doing with Japan.

2016-07-04 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart CLF-T iShares 1-5 yr Government Bond ETF

Not a big fan of anything to do with the income space right now, because there is really nothing. Everything in the income space is pretty much a reverse beauty contest. Relatively conservative. Because of the five-year ladder, you are basically building a laddered portfolio without having to worry about liquidity issues and multiple trading. We are in a market right now where you are making virtually nothing in bonds, especially when you pay taxes and 2% inflation. You would probably be better off just keeping the money in the money market fund or a laddered GIC.

2016-07-04 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart VDY-T Vanguard FTSE Cdn High Div Yd.

People need to think about getting more money out of Canada and how to deal with income. If you don’t mind taking a little more risk, then maybe you can aim for dividend income as opposed to getting a coupon. This is not a traditional income play, but if you want to buy this for the income and hold it for a very long term, he wouldn’t blame you entirely for that. Dividend yield of about 3.5%.

2016-07-04 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart VEE-T Vanguard MSCI Emerg. Mkt. ETF

(A brand new product.) He is a big believer in emerging markets, and this is probably the market leader in Canada for the emerging-market space. Lowest cost. Very broadly diversified and does a very good job of tracking. It will be above average volatility, but if you have a long-term time horizon, emerging markets is an area you should be looking at.

2016-07-04 TOP PICK Must be logged in to use chart VVL-T Vanguard Global Value Factor ETF

A factor based product, so it is an actively managed ETF. There is a very long history of evidence showing that value stocks outperform growth stocks. If you want to buy a broad basket of global value stocks, this is a good way to do it.

2016-07-04 COMMENT Must be logged in to use chart XID-T iShares CNX Nifty India

iShares CNX Nifty India (XID-T) or Vanguard MSCI Emerging Market (VEE-T)? He likes both. The question is, how do you want to get exposure to emerging markets. BMO has a very good one as well BMO India Equity Hedged to CAD (ZID-T), which is also a bit cheaper than this one. (See Top Picks.)
