ZWC would be his favourite so he can be more defensive. If you are bullish, ZDV would make sense. Markets have some squeeze potential and there is liquidity coming to markets from stimulus. He does not see materially higher highs than where we are up until early next year.

The challenge with the typical balance portfolio is that when you take the yield from bonds and yield from equities like dividends, it is very low.

The caller owns the many of the underlying stocks and is considering switching to this ETF. ZWC is a covered call so you will get some enhanced yield. If you seek yield, it could be a better way to go. If you want flexibility, then the individual stocks makes sense. Hard to know the right answer.

He bought in 2015/16 and it moved up nicely and then went sideways for 2 to 3 years. This is its common pattern. It is on the tail end of a pretty big rise. It is probably due for another breather.
