This is their low volatility ETFs. The ZLU.U pays distributions in US dollars. He would stick with a US index rather than an all market one, but it depends on what type of investor you are.

It had too much weight in Europe and it was doing nothing. Switched out of it a few weeks ago. It's a good product but it's not working in this market.

If interest rates goes back, then you can get really hurt. If you want long-term, you can have some short duration bonds. ZST is a short term bond. He wouldn't buy it right now.

He doesn't follow this that much. The yield isn't great at 2.9%. However, you have look at the yield to maturity since the quoted yield is just an indicator.

Well diversified, low cost ETF. However, every time he's bought it, something happens and he sells it. He's not in Europe right now because of all it's problems.
