Would like a Gold ETF but enjoys getting dividends - Don't think dividend and gold stock. They are two different things. Don't go together. Even if it pays dividend it is going to move a lot. Gold is going into a consolidation. He prefers XGD. The granddaddy in the space. But it is expensive at 65 basis points.

It is RRSP season and this fits well there. Nice substitute for Canadian Corporate Bonds. It is US investment grade. MER is 0.28% He likes it because it is far more spread over sectors compared to Canadian indexes. This is hedged. Yield is a little over 3%.

Equal weight indexes is something they like. He likes Europe. The market weight index tends to be lumpy with the large companies in it. Many companies serve in emerging markets. Trades on NEO not on the TSX.

You buy it once and you don't have to do anything else if you buy it in a registered account. You don't have to think. MER is 18 basis points. Very cheap.
