Not a big fan of bond ETFs but this one is very high quality. The yield swings around. It has negative times and it's been an unusual time for returns. There's a limit to appreciation. The returns in the last 12 months probably won't be repeated.

It is the broad Canadian bond market. It is not a great holding. You want floating rate notes. HFR-T is a better bet. ZST-T does this in Canada.

An aggravate bond ETF. He sits on this kind of thing as a core anchor. The bond universe has many long bonds and they are not likely to be stellar performers.

(A Top Pick May 26/16. Down 0.81%.) This has lost a bit of ground, but on a total return basis, because of the yield to maturity, it is still a little bit up. There are bonds in this and they are paying a coupon, so it is doing what it is supposed to do. It is meant to be the ballast in a portfolio, not meant to deliver total returns.

They are not going to crank the rates up soon, so he would prefer to use this one.

A fairly low fee and gives exposure to the entire Canadian bond market. The “entire” Canadian bond market is probably a bit riskier than what most retail investors want to get out of their fixed income exposure, because of the long maturities that are out there. This has a weighted average duration of about 7 years. He supplements this with some shorter term, corporate credit ETF’s, to bring down the overall risk of the whole portfolio.

DEX Floating Rate ETF (XFR-T) or Vanguard Cdn. Aggregate Bond ETF (VAB-T)? If interest rates rise, which would you Buy? This one is a little bit longer in duration with an average of 6 or 7 years and might be a little bit more sensitive to interest rate hikes so the floating rate might be a little bit safer.
