COMMENT
How do you select ETFs? He likes low MERs in general when looking for ETFs -- usually under 10 bps. Don't buy the "smart Beta" ETFs with higher MERs. Look at iShares, BMO and Vanguard websites for more specific information. He thinks many of the higher MER ETFs might close down as there are simply too many doing the same thing at higher costs. He thinks XIN-T is a good candidate for the European markets as an example.

International developed markets outside of North America.  It has a higher dividend yield than the US markets.  It is currency hedged, which he likes.  But we have some serious growth challenges in Europe and he does not think it is over yet.  It is hard to be wildly positive on it.  It is too early.

You want to be globally diversified.  Compare to XIC-T over 3 years.  It has done really well.  Diversifying lowers your volatility.

(Top Pick May 1/14, Up 20.85%) People are reluctant to go in because of Greece and so on, but it has done quite well.

Great way to play an international market. It gives you exposure to the international market, and they hedge the currency out. Sometimes you can enhance your returns by not being hedged on the foreign currency, which has been the case as the Cdn$ has dropped off. However, going forward as an international investor, with the weak Cdn$ as it is, you want to consider ETF’s like this and iShares S&P 500 (CAD-Hedged) ETF (XSP-T) to hedge your foreign currency exposure.

We had a breakout.  The US market did well, but so did many other markets around the world.  He is in the US equivalent of this ETF in his fund.  He is generally neutral in currencies.  He is starting to move into long Canadian dollar vs. US dollar soon.  The Canadian dollar does well in April.

He likes this and it is as good as any other. There are 3 or 4 that are relatively homogenous, and usually when looking at this, you are looking at this company, Bank of Montréal and Vanguard. These are the 3 leaders in low cost beta. This ETF is the largest and oldest, and he has used this a fair bit in the past. Ridiculously cheap and a very good product.

TOP PICK

(All 3 Top Picks are cheap, pure, tax effective and broadly diversified.) This is one of the ETFs that has not had a price cut. If you prefer one with the same sort of benchmark, but without the hedge you could get iShares MSCI EAFE IMI Ind (XEF-T) instead and is .3% cheaper.

HOLD

This is the far East, but it has Australia and Japan in it as well. He is not really happy about Australia. He would be more interested in a straight Europe play right now by using the Vanguard FTSE Europe ETF (VGK-N). However, this is a good Hold. (See Top Picks.)

Has been in and out of this one. Has a fair bit of the far east, including Japan. Also, has Australia and the region there that can be quite commodity sensitive. On the other hand, it has an awful lot of Europe, which he likes. He does like Japan. His only concern is in terms of the commodity related ones. Good product.

Sold his holdings many months ago because of what was happening in Europe. This one is about 20% of the UK, 20% Japan, 10% each of Switzerland, Germany and Austria. Very little of it is Ireland, Portugal, Spain and Greece. Wouldn't be in a huge rush to Sell but also wouldn't be adding to it.
