“How to get the most out of the boom in ETFs”
A new advisory—Best ETFs for Canadian Investors—can help you maximize your profits from ETFs in more ways than you ever imagined
Dear Canadian investor,
ETFs are one of the best things to happen to investors in this century.
I’m sure you’ve read a lot about them already. You may have one or more ETFs tucked away in your portfolio.
But you may be surprised at how much you can get out of ETFs. They open up new investment opportunities for every kind of investing:
- Conservative: if you want a broad base of high-quality stocks, ETFs are made to order.
- Aggressive: if you’re seeking a wide choice of fast growth opportunities, you have a wide choice of ETFs;
- International: If you’re looking to profit from foreign markets, you have a ready-made ally in ETFs;
- Savings Plans: When you put together your Tax-Free Savings Account, ETFs are a smart building block (and the same goes for your RRSP, or RESP);
- Hot Trends: If you want to own gold or silver stocks, or the best agricultural stocks, or even the stocks the world’s wealthiest investors hold, there’s an ETF for you;
- Time saving: If you don’t have a lot of extra time to spend on investing, ETFs are your friend.
We have followed these remarkable investments from their early beginnings through their explosion in popularity. Better than anyone else in Canada, we will show you how to get the most out of ETFs.
And you can discover it all in a new, ground-breaking publication.
An endless number of exciting possibilities
Many investors regard ETFs as a cheaper alternative to mutual funds. That’s true, but there’s so much more to it than that.
No investment gives you a wider window on investing than ETFs.
From less than 50 ETFs just a decade ago, there are now more than 500 available on Canada’s stock exchanges alone. They have over $135.2 billion in assets—and those assets have grown by more than 17% in the past year. There are now 1,707 ETFs on U.S. exchanges. (There are also many ETFs trading in North America that give Canadians easy access to international stocks on exchanges around the world.)
These ETFs hold thousands of stocks and an endless number of exciting possibilities. Now we are bringing all of our research and analysis together to help you identify the right ones for your portfolio.
We are launching a new advisory devoted entirely to ETFs.
It’s called Best ETFs for Canadian Investors. You will not find anything like it in Canada, or anywhere else.
This newsletter will take you deeper into ETFs than any other publication you can find.
Before I tell you about how affordable it is to try this unique newsletter, let me first show you why the closer you look at ETFs, the more exciting they become.
We found a lot to like about the best of these simple, low-fee investments from the start. But we discovered something more.
The very nature of ETFs brings together fascinating groups of stocks. Look carefully at almost any ETF and you’ll discover that they’re chock full of individual stocks with real appeal.
We’ve already done the looking for you. Here’s how our research and recommendations can help you reap the full rewards of these exceptional investments.
The investor’s three stars—security, profits, lower fees
For years, my investment team and I have proven that our thorough, careful system of investing is the most secure way to build real wealth.
With our approach, you sleep soundly knowing that your investments can resist the worst that the economy, the markets and political upheavals can throw at it.
The best ETFs fit right into this philosophy. From the beginning they were a distinct improvement in fund investing. Because they trace clearly-defined indexes and stock groups, they essentially act as highly efficient mutual funds. Because they require less “management,” fees can be much lower.
That should be welcome relief in this country: surveys show that Canadians pay the highest mutual fund fees in the world year after year.
Simple, well-defined ETFs are the key to your success. The easier an investment is to explain and understand, the less likely it is to have hidden risks and costs that can only work against you.
Still, it must be said that the very popularity of ETFs has served to complicate the picture.
And because greed never rests, there are now complex ETFs that hold pitfalls for unwary investors.
For a large part of the investment industry, the more complicated an investment, the better. Each new feature provides a profit opportunity for the institution that sponsors the investment. This leads to added features like “hedging” to avoid foreign exchange risk. This may look more secure, but it can double or triple the fees.
But our subscribers won’t have to worry about that. Best ETFs for Canadian Investors cuts away the complexity.
We will guide you to the ETFs that offer you the greatest security and profits.
ETFs for every Canadian portfolio
Your first question about ETFs might logically be: what are the best ETFs I can own?
With most types of investments, our reply would usually be tempered with a reference to your goals, your current portfolio and your temperament as an investor.
But in fact, there are a select group of ETFs that we think just about any Canadian investor can buy with confidence.
In Best ETFs for Canadian Investors, you will get our recommendations on the best Canadian ETFs and the ETFs that give you the simplest way to benefit from the top U.S. stocks.
And there’s still more to be gained.
Worldwide ETFs for a diversified portfolio
We stress the importance of diversification for every investor. And ETFs may be the most effective and effortless way to diversify your investments.
Best ETFs for Canadian Investors will help you take full advantage of growth in world markets.
The leading stocks in markets around the world are grouped into ETFs that give you easy access to both mature economies, like Germany, and emerging economies, like India. We have researched these markets: we have studied the economies, the companies and yes, the politics, of each of the countries we report on.
With our information and analysis, you will know what makes these markets tick. You will know your options clearly. No one else gives you coverage like this.
There is yet another rich vein of ETFs we will help you tap.
Specialty ETFs: Amazing stories to tell
The explosion of ETFs is so great that every area of the economy seems to have its own ETF. And so, it seems, does every trend in contemporary life.
In Best ETFs for Canadian Investors you will get our reports on at least three of these “theme” ETFs in every issue. Believe me, there are amazing stories to tell, often revealing investment opportunities you may not have suspected.
For example, there are ETFs investing in stocks that stand to profit from the preferences and spending habits of the so-called Millennial generation (born in the 1980s). This encompasses an enormous variety of stocks in everything from social media to clothing to cuisine.
With our reports in Best ETFs for Canadian Investors, you will learn a great deal about the stocks these ETFs hold and the trends they aim to profit from.
Here’s a glimpse into a future that’s getting closer every day. You may believe Artificial Intelligence will yield some spectacular investment results in the coming years. To survey the field, you don’t have to jump into a high-powered hedge fund hunting for “unicorns” (Silicon Valley start-ups valued at over $1 billion).
There’s an ETF that has created its own index of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) stocks. We will dissect that ETF and bring our thorough research to bear on the entire field of A.I., where it’s been and where it’s headed.
We will do the same for you on one of the hottest fields of speculation in Canada, marijuana stocks. We won’t just tell you about the stocks aiming to profit from the coming legalisation of marijuana, but the challenges and possibilities of a new industry being born.
You will have the benefit of all the inside information and knowledge we gather.
With our in-depth coverage, you have a rare opportunity to uncover investment opportunities that could pay off in surprising and unexpected ways.
What’s more, the information you gather from our coverage of each of these investment themes is sure to sharpen your perspectives as an investor.
And you will have some revealing, entertaining and potentially very profitable reading in the process.
