ETFs: an added dimension to your investment choices
Starting in June 2017, our clients will be able to include Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) in the investment portfolios constructed through our office.
ETFs offer low-cost investment choices that are designed to enhance diversification, improve risk management and provide better risk-adjusted returns:
We are pleased to partner with three leading providers of ETFs:
- Vanguard Canada www.vanguardcanada.ca

What is an ETF?
Who is this for?
- with investable assets of $250,000 or greater, and able to allocate $100,000 or greater to ETFs
- who are seeking core holdings at a lower cost to own than a mutual fund
- who want enhanced diversification, or access to a specific economic sector
- who seek superior performance with lower risk over reasonable periods of time
- who want to execute a range of strategic and tactical portfolio options
ETFs' Benefits for you
- Low costs
Management Expense Ratios (MERs) for ETFs tend to be significantly lower than mutual funds. Most ETFs do not pay trailing commissions.
Trading costs are usually lower, as the underlying securities are bought & sold less frequently than within a mutual fund.
Tracking an index means that individual securities do not need be be sold unless the underlying index is changed or re-balanced
- Flexibility through intra-day trading
Like stocks, ETFs may be traded at any time that the exchange is open.
Since an ETF tracks an index, you know at all times what securities the ETF holds and in what proportion.
I already have mutual funds. Why should I add ETFs?
- To save money
- To participate in specialized sectors
- To broaden your diversification
- To avoid missing out on certain securities
- To achieve competitive returns over the long run
