A few folks have asked me how I am investing in the current market. I have found an exciting new fund which trades OTC as MAT. It tracks to the MTRS which means that the fund is guaranteed never to lose the initial investment. With the TSX having lost a few thousand this year, this fund would have held its own.
The MER is also very low.
The only downside is the lack of an upside. And to invest in the MAT is a classic DIY approach for the independently minded investor. Below is how to get started in your MAT fund and track to the MTRS.
I cannot think of a better way to invest right now.
