This is because indexing in Canada is largely overshadowed by the massive actively managed machine called mutual funds. While mutual funds are popular for many reasons; easy to buy and contribute to name a few, they have one major drawback — they can cost you lots of money. To you as an investor, they could mean plenty. I also hope my finances in my lates will be much better than today.

I started the book only knowing I thought passive investing was a good idea, and finished feeling confident enough to open an account with a discount brokerage. Apr 27, Dmitry rated it really liked it. An introduction to index investing specifically targeted at Canadians. If you're looking for a sane retirement strategy that makes sense than this book is worth a look. By betting on the market one'll get a mostly reliable return - with caveats.
Quite a compelling argument in favour of the 'Couch Potato' investing strategy that proclaims passive investing is the way to go. Great read, and very practical examples and templates to help apply the information to your life.

Reviewed: MoneySense Guide to the Perfect Portfolio
A new investment guide from MoneySense magazine gathers in one place a wealth of knowledge about passive index investing. By Larry MacDonald December 16, But why a book about passive investing with index funds or ETFs? Many of these details can be found separately in financial blogs such as Canadian Capitalist, but the book conveniently gathers it all in one place. And veteran journalist, author and blogger Dan Bortolotti does a great job of conveying the information in a clear, concise manner. One area where his clarity rings through is a discussion on minimizing the high, poorly disclosed currency fees on foreign investments traded within RRSPs.
