Single best financial services investment in Canada. Unbelievable franchise. This is based on the consistency of the equity. Every year profits go up by about 25%, year after year. Although it has been flat for the last couple of years the multiple has compressed significantly.

Most attractive sub sector in financial services right now is anything related to the mortgage lending market. This company provides mortgage insurance. This area is an oligopoly in Canada with CMHC being in the only other player. 3.5% yield and good growth profile.

1st or 2nd best managed bank in Canada. (Royal Bank (RY-T) would be the other.) However, this is a well-known fact so the valuation already reflects it. On the five-year view, the stock will deliver very well for you but there are cheaper banks out there. Dividend of about 4.4%.
