An infrastructure play, and the sort of thing that if you believe long-term that infrastructure is going to do fairly well, this is pretty safe. With all infrastructure plays, you are not going to get the massive sexy returns that you get in certain other things, but you are also a lot less likely to see a down number.

This has done quite well. Value investing and factor investing. If you tilt toward small-cap in value, historically you will get returns that beat the benchmark, albeit with slightly more volatility.

This is a new product, about 2 months old. It is basically a value tilt. Value stocks historically outperform the market.

This is a large cap product, and is basically 1st world economies. It is one of the top 8-10 countries outside of Canada, but you are getting exposure to 85%-90% of 1st world stock market capitalization. A great way to get stocks around the world.
