While it might be a bit too early for many investors to step into direct European equity exposure, those with a higher appetite for risk may want to consider it. One interesting way to get some exposure to the region without taking on the full risk of the market would be to use the First Asset MSCI Europe Low Risk Weighted ETF.

In several major economies, monetary policy is reaching its limits. It seems that every day we see headlines asking, “Have central banks run out of ammunition?” The question dominates the financial markets’ discourse. Its ubiquity reflects the central banks’ unprecedented role in both stabilizing economic growth and supporting asset prices since the end of the global financial crisis. But the question also reflects disappointment. Global growth remains frustratingly fragile. Inflation has stubbornly fallen short of central bank targets. This disappointment has led to a negative feedback loop between central banks and the markets.

Against a backdrop of high uncertainty about the U.S. Federal Reserve Board’s next interest rate move, stock markets ended a week of lacklustre late-summer choppy trading with neither big gains nor losses for the week. In the commodities market, crude oil surged 8.6% on the week, as U.S. stockpiles fell and rumors surfaced of a possible meeting of members of the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) in September. Toronto’s benchmark S&P/TSX Composite Index closed the week just below breakeven at -0.4%, while the S&P 500 Composite Index ended the week flat. The S&P/TSX Composite still leads in performance, with a year-to-date gain of nearly 13%, eclipsing the S&P 500’s near 7% advance.

Q – I’m in my mid-30s, married, with two kids. I’ve lately seen video clips of advisors saying that people in my age bracket need to start planning to make sure they have enough money for retirement. That seems a little too early for me. And I’m not really sure what they mean. Won’t my Canada Pension Plan guarantee income in retirement? What’s your view? – Sondra E., Lethbridge, Alberta

TAX PLANNING FROM THE KNOWLEDGE BUREAU



By Evelyn Jacks

Hard to believe, but it’s back-to-school time, and parents and students are already busy preparing for fall classes. Thank goodness there is tax relief for the expensive tuition fees and textbooks. But, like the disappearing Fitness and Arts tax credits I focused on in a previous article, some of the education-related credits will soon be lost as well, starting as soon as January 1, 2017. Are you up to speed on the changes?
