A diversified portfolio, whether invested in RRSPs or TFSAs, can perform very well over a horizon of more than 5 years while producing negative returns over a shorter period (one year). Your financial planner will help you understand volatility over a period of time so that fluctuations are in your favor.
Are you willing to accept portfolio cuts of 3%, 5% or 10%? Some will say yes, others will say no. The important thing is to discuss it with an independent professional so that he can guide you in your choices.
The investment portfolio represents all of your investments. In order to limit the risks and ensure that the return is maximum, it is advisable to diversify your income.
