Investment Q&A

Not investment advice or solicitation to buy/sell securities. Do your own due diligence and/or consult an advisor.

Q: For a 10+ year passive hold of approximately 25% weighting of total equities investment (mix of registered and non-registered accounts), do you see an advantage of holding EQL vs a straight S&P 500 index like VFV including taking into account the fees differences. And for non-registered accounts- CAD hedged or non-hedged?
EQL feels a little better to me even with the fee but maybe I'm overthinking this one. Thank you.

Q: Hello
Thinking of retiring and drawing the dividends from our RRSP to replace income from employment until age 71.
Would it make sense to sell the first 4 mentioned and buy only EQL.
This move would give us $5,000. more yearly income from dividends (before taxes).
I mentioned selling VIG because of the currency variability and EQL pays a higher dividend..
We would still maintain growth ETFs like IWO, ICLN, KWEB, PSCH etc.
Thank you for your time.
