A core iShares offering. It has only a 0.1% MER. It holds Canadian and foreign Canadian-denominated bonds (Maple bonds). It offers some diversification, but it will not shoot the lights out. It is short duration and high quality holdings and acts as a good defensive holding. This is fine for most Canadian investors.

It’s really not a bond fund. A place to park your money with yield just under 2%. You’re not exposed to a major sell-off in fixed income. If you’re cautious as he is, it’s a good play.

Invests mostly in bank papers. A good place to park money for short-term. Better than just sitting on cash. The ETF is pretty liquid so you can sell it whenever. Boring but at a reasonable price and yield.

You use this to park your cash. Not a long-term investment. This is for the short-term. Has very small price swings. If central banks raise rates, XSH will trend down.

This is short-term corporate bonds. As credit risk increases with higher market volatility along with interest rates going up, this has lost some value.

(A Top Pick Aug 12/14. Up 3.9%.) This is short bonds and at that time he was suggesting holding cash. Very liquid, so you use it as your cash reserve.

It doesn’t have a huge range of trading. Yield is okay at about 3%. Short-term pays you less than 1% on an after-tax basis, so this is not a bad place to park your money.
