Smart investing – the power of ETF portfolios

Efficient, low-cost investing

Investing success largely depends on holding a strategic mix of different kinds of investments. With VirtualWealth, your money is invested in Canadian, U.S. and global stocks and bonds, through the use of Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs). ETFs combine individual stocks and bonds into a single low-cost, diversified and efficient investment.

Our portfolios

VirtualWealth portfolios are designed to meet a range of objectives. More stocks if you’re focused on long-term growth. More bonds if you require income and safety. Or blends of both if you want a balanced approach. Each portfolio is optimized to deliver consistent performance while controlling risk.


Over time the variable performance of different investments will cause the asset allocations in a portfolio to shift from their targets. With VirtualWealth, the investments are continually monitored and rebalanced whenever they shift away from their target mix.

The average blended MER for our ETF portfolios is generally less than 0.15% of the value of the account. For more details, visit our Pricing page.
