For an 18-year old in a TFSA? Absolutely, really likes it. About 70% equities, 30% fixed income. US/Canada, emerging/developed markets. Cheap, and automatically rebalances every 6 months. Mini-portfolio, good for small accounts. Replaces robo-advisers. Very well diversified.

This is highly linked to tech companies like Alphabet, Google, etc. He likes the diversification overall, but cautions it is focused on growth companies that he expects could retrace as the cycle peaks. Yield 1%.

He likes the Vanguard asset allocation ETFs, including this one. They're cheap, with a 0.23% MER. They're great for smaller accounts and they automatically rebalance, so they are good competition for robo-advisors.

Was one of his top picks a couple of shows before. Bonds are important for safety and makes 20% of this ETF. For a multi-asset class vehicle that rebalances this is a great instrument and for 23 basis points, it is a great deal.

One stop shopping. A basket of other ETFs. 20% bonds on this one. Very good product for small accounts. Just bought it, hasn’t settled yet.
