Q: I'm entering retirement and won't be adding much more new capital to savings and so capital preservation is paramount as I look at drawing down phase in the next 6 months. Right now I am still heavily exposed to the markets with about 85% equity exposure. I want to increase the amount of safety but am concerned with the loss of purchasing power and feel the old 60/40 rule isn't adequate anymore. The big dilemma in today's environment is that there really aren't a lot of alternatives to stocks for keeping up with inflation, but this involves capital risk. What balance do you think is more appropriate in this environment? I'm thinking around 75/25 while trying to keep around 12-18 months of expenses in high interest savings so one doesn't have to sell into a down market.

Are you aware of products offered in the market that may provide returns of 5-8% while being "fairly" safe for the capital invested?

Any suggestions on perhaps bond funds that offer returns that will at least keep pace with inflation after fees without undue manageable risk for capital safety?

Looking for any ideas..preferred shares ETF's? (know there is still some capital risk here). Thank you for your help and input.

Q: I own 100 shares of STIP in my RRSP. It's expected interest is listed as slightly over 4 percent. But in my TD Waterhouse account, under expected income it shows me getting $739 dollars per year in interest or 61.60 per month. That works out to 7% in interest. Is this right? I've owned the ETF for three months and sure enough I have received the 61.60 for each of those months. If so, it is a really good return for fixed income. I'm just not sure what accounts for the discrepancy.
