Is buying three low-vol ETFs--XMU, XMI and XMW with a long-term treasury bond--in a recession a good strategy? He likes that. We're late in the cycle perhaps facing contraction in the near future. A good stategy is low-vol, because these stocks are less sensitive to the economic cycle. It doesn't mean that these low-vol ETFs will go up, but they will be relatively stable. So, in a recession, consumer staples are a good buy, because--for example--people will stay in and cook rather than dine out.

(A Top Pick Aug 17/15. Up 8.77%.) Minimum volatility is the way of playing the market that a lot of people hadn’t really thought about. A lot of people were concerned about markets being frothy. If you are concerned about volatility, using low volatility products might give you a little less on the upside, but you will also get less if things drop as well.

They are pretty good for nervous clients. The valuations are a lot higher because everybody likes this. He only buys this for a particularly risk adverse client.

If you are looking at a way to buy the US market in order to minimize exposure to Canada, this one gives you exposure to US stocks without having to deal with the ups and downs in what might be a volatile market going forward, you are at least getting exposure with less volatility. This is not currency hedged, so you may want to watch that because at some point he thinks currencies might start to go the other way.

This is quite new and he likes the concept of getting a lower beta portfolio i.e. less volatile. It’s a new product, so don’t expect miracles. There will be light volume on it because people are just getting used to these things.
