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.

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%.

Long-term hold with a little bit of dividend? This is a world index, so you basically own a globally diversified basket of securities. Think of it the same way you would as a global equity mutual fund. Doesn't think the markets are going anywhere so wouldn't put all of your money into this.
