Cdn Corp Bond ETF. A good product but he would go on their website and have a look at the duration and if it is anything more than 3 or 4 years, he would lighten up as you want short duration.

Cdn Corp Bond ETF. Probably provides best exposure to Canadian corporations. Probably yielding 3%-3.5%. Holds everything from 1 year to 30-year bonds. You could also look at some of the US ETF’s such as iShares Corporate Bond ETF (LQD-N) where you could do a little bit better.

Cdn Corp Bond ETF. Doesn't think there are risks any more with corporate bonds. This will give you a bit of yield pickup without venturing into preferreds.

Cdn Corporate Bond ETF. Thinks interest rates are going up and part of that is reflected in the bond market. He would hesitate. If you were going to buy a bond ETF, he would stay on the short end of the curve.

Cdn Corp Bond ETF. Prefers over the Cdn Bond Market ETF (XBB-T) because of its shorter duration and the higher yield. 52% of it is in financials, which is a high percentage.

Canadian Corporate Bond ETF. Spread between corporate and government bonds have narrowed a fair bit. Owning an ETF in the sector makes a lot of sense. Better diversification.

Canadian corporate bond ETF. Bonds have had a pretty good run and if you own, you might want to consider locking in some of your gains.

Investment grade corporate bond ETF. The run this year has been excellent so far with 15%. Outlook for interest rate is fairly stable so you will at least earn the coupon rate.
