Great instrument to get exposure to all the banks. If you hold it for 5 years, you will be fine. He would prefer directly owning Toronto Dominion (TD-T).

Covers the market cap weighted index. Banks are predominant. If you like financial services, this is a good way to play it. You could also use the Claymore Equal Weight Bank & Lifeco (CEW-T).

In general, financials on a medium and longer-term basis is a place you don't want to be. You should be aware what banks are exposed to.
