Hold for 15 years? Yes, likes it. But he won't love it for the next 15 months because he expects volatility. He's a big fan of factor-based investing--small-cap and value in this case. It's in US dollars, so don't put it in your TFSA.

A low-risk ETF for a TFSA? Two (both being top picks today). FLCI (a past pick) is medium-risk, consisting of medium-risk corporate bonds lasting 5-7 years. The most conservative is ZST.L which holds short-term bonds of 2.5% growth annually, slow, low but steady.

Less than a year old. Doesn't trade a whole lot. It moves from one asset class to the other depending of trend. It's a trend following product. If you think the markets might be in for a choppy ride, this is the kind of product that will allow you to trim the equity exposure if things start going the other way.
