TOP PICK
This protects against interest rate volatility. It's awkard for retail investors to buy bonds directly, but you can buy them this way. It's safety. You park your money here. Low MER.

TOP PICK

He’s using instead of cash. Floating rate, doesn’t move around much. If interest rates in Canada rise, this will track up with them. Another defensive play.

COMMENT

Floating rate notes. Feels that floating rate securities have a role to play in a portfolio but doesn’t think they should be the entire fund. They are pretty much a guaranteed “round trip”. Over time, banks tend to raise rates then they stop raising rates and then they start to ease rates. This is the time you want to own floating rate products because the floating part of your cash flow is going up. Then they stabilize and the most likely scenario at that time is for REITs to be lowered, which is when you want to get out, but everyone wants to get out. Really tricky.

BUY

Basically a lower yield ETF because dividends that are paid on the preferred shares inside this ETF are lower than what you would get on a standard preferred in the market. But this dividend will rise and fall based on the rate of interest. If you think interest rates are likely to be higher a year or 2 from now, you should have a portion of your portfolio into a product that will give you a great deal of stability and the rate of return you get in terms of the yield will float pretty tightly based on the current rate of interest rates.

COMMENT
DEX Floating Rate ETF (XFR-T) or Vanguard Cdn. Aggregate Bond ETF (VAB-T)? If interest rates rise, which would you Buy? The aggregate bond 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 this one might be a little bit safer.
