Low volatility funds have become quite popular of late, as many investors look for ways to protect their nest eggs from the more heart-stopping swings of the stock market. Never an industry to let an opportunity go to waste, the investment fund business has been quick off the mark to develop funds catering to demand by more risk-averse investors for products that dampen market volatility. RBC Global Asset Management has developed some low-volatility funds that I think have a lot of potential, including the RBC QUBE Low Volatility Global Equity Fund, which achieved a FundGrade™ A Grade in October.

Following three weeks of steady advances in November, stock markets took a breather, closing in the red for the week, against a backdrop of slower-than-expected U.S. job gains and a deal by Opec to reduce production of crude oil. While the S&P 500 Composite Index gained 2% month-over-month in November, it posted a -1% weekly loss at the close on Friday. The Nasdaq Composite Index, which recorded a 3.4% monthly gain in November, backed off in the first couple days of December to record an steep weekly loss of -2.7%. Toronto’s S&P/TSX Composite Index, however, was cushioned by the 12% week-over-week gain in crude oil prices, and posted only a hairline loss of 0.2% on the week.

Q – I turned 71 this year, and I still have a rather large RRSP to which I’ve been contributing. I understand that I have to convert my RRSP into another type of registered plan, but I’m not clear as to what my options are or what the deadline is. A friend told me that I have until the day before I turn 72 to choose what to do with my RRSP. Is that correct? – Fred J., Kingston, Ontario
