Q: Hi Everyone at 5i! I need your advice. I have a non registered portfolio, half I have invested in Canadian and US growth and income stocks. The other half I would like to invest in something more secure. GICs come to mind, but with low interest rates, inflation and unfavourable taxation, they seem like a loosing proposition. Any low risk suggestions??? Thank you for all that you do!!! Cheers, Tamara

5i Research Answer:

Some other low-risk options include the PSA ETF (within a brokerage account) and EQ Bank Savings account, with CDIC deposit insurance. Other options also include ultra-short-term bonds such as ZST and JPST. Other than GICs, nothing can be guaranteed of course.
