Q: Hi Peter, Ryan, and Team,

Portfolio Analytics indicates that we need to increase our Real Estate holdings, but the only place to do so would be in an unregistered account. Iím looking at GRT.UN and TCN. My thinking is that even though GRT.UN has a slightly better chart, the best option would be to go with TCN, and since itís not a REIT, there would be some tax advantages in this situation. Is my thinking correct? I should add that our only holdings in this sector are FSV and IIP.UN, both recommendations of 5i, but held in our RRIFs. A big thank you for these past recommendations, and for your assistance with my latest query.

Q: Further to my question of March 19, I have received the funds which represent 15% of my non registered account ( and 7.5 % of total portfolios).
I have added the hedged ZQQ to the list as I have no tech exposure in any portfolio and have a US property being 20% of my total assets, thus providing adequate currency diversification.
I used one third of the new funds to purchase BAM and am now looking for the next 2. Your suggestion and reasons are appreciated. Derek

Q: I will be converting my RSP to a RIF next year resulting in my income increasing some 50 % and with money I do not not need for my present lifestyle. The account is full of banks, reits, pipelines, infrastructure , utilities etc., as is my non registered account which is the same size as the RSP. Does it make sense to adjust the non registered account to more growth stocks , and hence less income ? I I have listed some prospective stocks. A crazy idea to reduce income and perhaps this is outside your.venue but any thoughts are appreciated. Derek
