Q: Good afternoon!
This is one of Dorr Capital's funds that invest in mortgages (assumedly higher risk), and are speculating (pun intended!) a return of 7.5% annually, with distributions monthly.
The management fee is 1.25% (Series "A") or .85% (Series "F"). There is a cost to redeem on 30 days notice of 2% if in 1 year or 1% if in the second year.
I don't think this is much of a good idea, but was wondering:
1) Your thoughts on this specific investment?
2) Would there be any equities you could steer me towards that do this type of investment but without the management fees or the slow redemptions?
Thanks!

Q: HI
I am woefully low in real estate and notice you have only 1 REIT in your three model portfolios combined albeit an equal weight REIT but your total real estate sector allocation would still be low. Are you bearish on real estate?

What if any real estate stocks do you like or would you still just favor ZRE for diversification for an RRSP holding? What would you suggest for real estate sector allocation percentage?

Q: Hi 5i, I started my stock market investing in March 2020 in order to get 'skin in the game'. I am a daily learner whose investing personality is that of an 'individualist'. I have determined my investing goal to be for income (mostly through dividends) and growth (for capital appreciation). I have found lately that my risk tolerance feels lower due to increasing volatility, talk of market decline/crash, increasing inflation, shortages, rising rates etc. As a result I would like to cash in the individual stocks I own that have given me good capital appreciation and replace them with ETF's and/or Index Funds. Income and growth plus diversification to my portfolio is my objective here. Since I hold more than enough physical precious metals and an emergency stash in US dollars I feel I have enough insurance/hedge against a worst case scenario happening in the economy. Please comment on these following ETF's. I am also open to other suggestions you might have as well. Please note that my entire TFSA is in my brokerage account so taxes are not an issue for me. Thanks

ZCN BMO S&P/TSX Composite Index
CIC CI First Asset Canadian Bank Income Class
ZWB BMO Covered Call Canadian Banks
RIT CI First Asset Canadian Banks
ZDV BMO Canadian Dividend
CDZ iShares Canadian Aristorcrats
XRE iShares Capped REIT
XEC Emerging Markets ETF

P.S. I assign an equal dollar amount for each investment in my portfolio. The ETF part of my portfolio are for long term holds.
