Likes real return bonds and there should be a little included in your fixed income portfolio. Because taxation they should be in your RRSP account. Yielding about 1.56% right now. Fund mimics the real return index of the DEX universe so it tracks the passive index fund that is invested in the various real return bonds.

If you are looking for crisis insurance and concerned about inflation and need some defensive positions in your portfolio, this is an excellent one to have. Yield is based on an interest flow stream that is inflation plus an interest rate.

Inflation Protected Bonds are priced based on whatever core inflation rate there is. The company will issue them at a rate above the core inflation rate. This will give you inflation plus a percent above. Really good if you think inflation is going up as the yields will always go up during inflation.

What is really interesting about this is that it's a really cheap way to get into real return bonds. Funds that specialise in this area have MER's that are more expensive than going this route. The fun is probably over for the time being.
