Q: Further to your reply to Gord on November 02, 2022, please explain why I should not simply select the ETF with the best historical "total return" if no tax implications (RSP or TFSA). My Koyfin Watchlist tells me that HSAV offered 0.32% more than the next best ETF over the past year (HSAV 2.40%; CASH 2.08%; PSA 2.02%; CSAV 2.01%). Are there liquidity issues with any of these ETFs? Or will their values move in different directions in rising rate or decreasing rate environments? I'm just trying to understand the different offerings, and unlike historical equity returns, can I just select the ETF that is offering the best historical total return - Thank you.

Q: I hope to retire in about a year. I'll have a comfortable defined benefit, I've used the portfolio analysis to diversify my investments. I have a sizeable cash amount earning nearly nothing at a bank. I have contemplated GIC's but don't like the idea of having my funds locked up in the event I would like to direct it to a project or investment .
Would there be a ETF /bond that would be relatively safe that would mirror the GIC returns?
