Q: Hi,
I assume that you will deduct question points as you see fit.
I am considering simplifying and 'conservatising' my RRIF.My wife andI are in our mid 70's.
Portfolio Analytical has again shown that my account is unbalanced with inadequate foreign content. I also need to increase my weightings in Consumer (discretional and defensive), Industrial and Technology.

Could you please suggest 5 names for conservative longterm holds in non Canadian Stocks or ETF's in the following categories?
a)consumer defensive
b)consumer discretionary
c)Industrials
d)Technology .

With many thanks,
David

Q: Good morning. Which do you feel would be a better etf for industrials in a RRif or do you have another suggestion? I understand IYJ has a higher mer but better long term performance with more holdings. Have they both equal risk? Would something with more international flavour be better?

Q: Hi 5i team,
I would like to own U.S. companies in the ‘Industrial’ sector that are well managed, with strong balance sheets and good growth on earnings. Could you please recommend a US listed ETF that focus on these companies? Thanks.

Q: Tony Dwyer from Cannacord likes to refer to "banks and tanks" as good areas to be in when the economy eventually turns positive. I believe he's referring to the more cyclicals. Can you suggest both Cdn and US ETF's that would fit the bill. Thanks.

Q: Please recommend a CAD unhedged US tech ETF and CAD unhedged US industrial ETF or any ETF which has a combination of both and would you buy at this time? Long term hold (10+ years) and medium to high risk. Thanks.

Q: What five ETF’s would be suitable to hold in an RRSP? I am interested in technology, healthcare, financials, energy and industrials. I am a moderately conservative investor, am looking at about a 15 year timeline and am interested in Canadian, US, global and emerging markets. Many thanks for your insights.

Q: I have recently taken over managing a 401K that is comprised of many ETFs. I have never owned an ETF prior but am wondering if this setup is reasonable. It feels like too many ETFs with a fair bit of overlap. Currently equal weights of: XLV, XLI, XLY, XLK, XLRE, XLU, XLP, XLF, XLC, XLE. Your thoughts - some of these the fees are a bit high as well!
