BUY
Is it smart to buy two diversified ETFs then take a single position out? No, he doesn't recommend nor use single stock positions. If you want one single ETF, look at XWD. It spans the world (large-cap, blue-chip and diverse) and it has gotten off to a great start this year. He prefers ETFs that are cheaper than most, but not the cheapest, because he prefers ETFs that are factor-based which will cost 35 basis points. The 35 basis points are worth it than a no-frills, super-low MER ETF.

DON'T BUY
ZGQ-T vs. XWD-T. ZWD-T is the world except for Canada. ZGQ-T is a world quality index. In a slowdown you want to own companies with the cleanest balance sheet and lowest leverage. That is the quality factor. He prefers ZGQ-T over ZWD-T.

BUY

I'm young and willing to buy an ETF that carries risk. Which one? VXC-T, a one-stop, affordable ETF ex-Canada. Or there's ex-EM, XWD-T. Also, pick something in a sector you're comfortable with and know something about. Don't go in blind.

COMMENT

An ETF that is basically invested in a number of countries around the world. It is an international type index. Has been avoiding this area because of some of the problems different countries have had. Indications are that growth outside of North America is definitely improving. You may be back in a situation where you want to have part of your portfolio in international securities. He is not quite convinced yet. It has potential for growth.

Global ETF for an RESP? An all-world ETF. You are buying large cap stocks from around the world and getting them from 16-17 countries giving you global diversification. Low cost. Very safe way to go.

TFSA vs RRSP, and examples of ETF’s that would be more suitable? For the large majority of people, the TFSA money is the money that you can be a little more aggressive with because there is more flexibility because the growth you have will be pulled out tax-free. If you want things that are going to grow, and hopefully will be a little more aggressive as a result of seeking that growth, he would use things like iShares MSCI World Index Fund (XWD-T) or Vanguard FTSE All-World ex Canada (VXC-T), both global broadly diversified equity positions that are trying to get you exposure around the world.

An ETF that holds stocks around the world. He just used this for one of his client’s RESP. It gives you exposure to the stock market globally. MER is very low. Especially good for small accounts like RESP’s and TFSA’s.

The world index, and it is not hedged.  Half American, almost half European & Asian, and 4% Canadian.  It is the weighting of the markets around the world.  It is an ETF of ETFs.

Not big on dividends necessarily, but huge on global diversification. This gives you large and small caps, many of which are paying dividends, but that is not the driver of that bus.

An all in one ETF that would be suitable for a small RRIF? If you are just going to pick one ETF at the moment, he would pick the XWD. It has the S&P 500, the EFI index, and a little bit of Canada in it.

Starter ETFs for <$1000 portfolio for kids.  Best idea is dollar cost averaging.  Build a portfolio for the long term.  More equity exposure than fixed income.  XWD is the developed market - Canada and International.

TOP PICK

You are actually looking at stocks from around the world. Holds mostly other ETF’s. This would be a really, really good product to use in your TFSA because instead of saying you want to buy Canada, US or international emerging, this is the one single ticket they give you exposure to all of them. Yield of 1.85%.
