She believes we are in a rising rate environment, although she doesn’t think we are going to see sky high rates. From this point on, money is best spent in equities. She would prefer higher yielding Canadian equities.

Much further along in the risk spectrum. High yield. Wouldn't put a significant amount of money into this. Well diversified with individual assets. Fairly high risk.
