Month in Review - February 2022
Stock markets had another weak month, with the TSX Composite sneaking out a small gain of 0.3%, while the S&P 500 (in CAD) fell 3.2%. Once again, the Canadian Universe Bond Index also had a poor month falling 0.8%, again resulting in larger losses for traditional portfolios consisting of bonds and equities. We continue to highlight that we use private real estate and private debt as the core holdings for the safety portion of your portfolios. Once again, both asset classes held up, giving you better downside protection than bonds, resulting in a much smoother investing experience for you.
