This portfolio contains a mixture of ETFs, mutual funds, common stocks, and REITs. That means the only way you can replicate it is by having a self-directed RRSP with a brokerage firm, either full-service or discount. The initial portfolio value is based on an investment of about $25,000.
Our bond holdings continue to weigh on our returns but they provide the needed stability for an RRSP in the event of a market meltdown. Consider them as your insurance policy.
Despite this, the overall portfolio registered a modest gain of $716.85 for the period, or 1.6%. That’s not great but this is a difficult period for a portfolio of this type.
In the six and a half years since this portfolio was launched the average annual gain is 9.4%. That’s well in excess of our target, despite the weak returns of the past year.
