Q: Do you like VA or better to invest in a different ETF? I own only this ETF and AFG Global Dividend Fund. The VA ETF has not performed that well and wonder if I should invest a better overall global ETF? If so what would be your recommendation?

Q: We have( for me) a quite large sum of money invested in managed products. Any new money is going into Canadian equities ( 30%) following your portfolios and a mix of ETF roughly
30% USA at 10% SPY, 10% VIG, 10%IWO
30% International currently VE
10% emerging currently VEE
( I know "where is your fixed income" you ask, my spouse has a federal government pension which I count as our fixed income)
To date these sums are relatively small. As I start to shift large sums from our managed products to my self managed portfolio ( following the above ratios) I am ok with the mix in the USA spread to 3 etfs run by 3 different companies. With the international and emerging I am a bit concerned about putting all that cash with one fund (and company). Is this concern silly or should I have some diversification within my ETF holdings ( both in terms of funds and companies). For example instead of having 30% of my holdings in VE I would split it 15% VE and 15% XEF. So I guess the short questions are:

1. What is the max an investor should have in any one ETF( %)
2. What is the max an investor should have with any one company ( $ or %)

Q: I'd like to simplify my rrsp and have a constant stream of income. I was thinking of selling my 30 stock over weight in canada and buy 5 or 6 ETF. Making easier to manage and have more investment outside of Canada. Do you like ZWC 20% weighting Ca, ZWH,20% weighting Us , ZWP20% weighting Eur , ZQQ 20% weighting Global tech company and Maybe ZRE for last 20% because reits usually goes up in a negative market. Please give me your opinion on my ETFs and your 6 picks would be? take as many question credit needed. Income and diversification globally are my goal.
