2. one was lucky and was able to buy either TPE and/or THE near the bottom.
Which ETF would you buy for best price appreciation?

Q: Hi 5i
Can I please get your thoughts on geographic selection for index mutual fund investment?

Working with TD e-Series Funds, monthly contribution, 19 year old just getting started, single fund has been the thought so far.

Choice Range: Canada Index? US Index? International Index(Holds TPE ETF)?
(can go Europe only but I'm guessing you will ward off this selection)

Comments welcome on all aspects.

Q: My adult son (Canadian citizen/resident) is in his early 30's, has maxed out his RSP and TFSA (he holds high-quality individual securities within these accounts, which have done well over the years), and he is lucky to have a high-paying job in which he has surplus funds (Canadian dollars) that he can invest, within a non-registered account, approx. $20k to $25k per month. The goal is long-term growth, aggressive (80% equities), with the possibility that he may need some of the funds within the next 3-5 years, to join a group practice (capital contribution toward partnership). My advice to him is that he purchase each month among the five following ETFs (% as indicated below), rebalancing as he makes new monthly contributions:
20% VAB = Vanguard Canadian Aggregate Bond Index ETF;
20% ZCN = BMO S&P/TSX Capped Composite Index ETF;
25% VFV = Vanguard S&P 500;
25% TPE = TD International Equity Index ETF;
10% ZEM = BMO MSCI Emerging Markets Index ETF.
What do you think of these 5 particular funds and the overall allocation? For his situation, are there different ETFs you might suggest we look at that would be better-suited for his situation? Thank you.
