Top things to consider when reviewing your portfolio.
Most Canadians are over invested in Canada.
Though Canada only accounts for 3% of global investable equities. Which means people are missing out on 97% of all other investment opportunities. As the average Canadian has 92% of their assets tied to Canada; that's a major concentration risk.
Expectations vs. Structure
Does your portfolio structure reflect your expectations?
Most portfolios do not reflect investor expectations. People usually have extremely conservative portfolios, yet complain about low returns. We start with understanding the client's financial capacity for risk and build from there.
Under-Diversified or Over-Diversified
Do you have too many bank and railway stocks?.
Another common point of investment risk is when portfolios are under-diversified; for example, owning too many bank stocks or utility companies. Conversely, owning too much of everything (being overdiversified) introduces return risk and benchmark underperformance.
Understand the costs and know what you're paying for.
Many investors are unaware of implicit and external costs associated with their accounts. Fees are something we carefully review with clients.
Tax Smart Investments
How is your advisor thinking about taxes when investing?
When you're in a higher income tax bracket, the type of investment and where you own it can have a significant impact on your after-tax returns.
