Canadian $ hedged.  Broad markets.  Smaller accounts should not do the smaller sector ETFs.  There is nothing wrong with this in these situations, however.  He prefers to look at the sectors individually otherwise.  It is not a core holding for him.  He likes Vanguard.

CAD-Hedged.  This is a good way to play the total market.  As the US economy gets stronger it lifts all the others.

COMMENT

He likes the US market, and you are getting the broadest exposure with this instrument. Vanguard is noted for having some of the lowest MERs. Their hedging is very reasonable. Unfortunately that hedging didn’t help you last year.

Vanguard S&P 500-CAD Hedged (VSP-T) or Vanguard MSCI US Broad Market (VUS-T)? The difference between these 2 is that one is hedged and the other is not, although this one holds about 6000 stocks.

TOP PICK

Continues to look at the US market in a bullish sense. We have low energy costs and low interest rates. What is not to like out there. He is Bullish on the US and sees that there will be wage demands and a little bit of inflation. That recovery is going to continue throughout the economy. This also drills down into mid-caps and small-caps, so it is a much more broad coverage.

This gives you the whole market, large cap, small-cap, etc, and it is cheap. It is basically the S&P 500. A good way of getting a lot of diversification, and getting into the small and mid-cap areas in the US.

Would Vanguard’s S&P 500 ETF (VOO-N) or Vanguard’s US Total Market ETF (VUS-T) be an appropriate starter to have some US investments in my portfolio? Either one would be fine.

COMMENT

Should this be sold in order to buy an unhedged version? When you buy something unhedged, there is always a bit of a tracking error, in other words an additional cost is involved, but this is a Vanguard product and they do a really good job of keeping their costs down.
