Long Term Performance
80% of active mutual fund managers can't best the indexes consistently over the long term*. Rather than picking individual stocks and hoping those companies are winners, Streetwise Portfolios create tailored portfolios of market indexes, giving you exposure to thousands of the largest companies in North America and around the world.
The less you pay in fees, the more that's left in your portfolio to grow. Indexing is a straightforward strategy and that allows us to reduce the costs†.
Streetwise Portfolios are investment portfolios with holdings in a selection of Market Indexes. This ensures that no single change of one stock, bond, sector or region in the markets will greatly affect the performance of Streetwise Portfolios. Each of the Streetwise Portfolios uses different asset allocations to match your investor profile.
Ensure you don't miss out on market gains, and automatically take advantage of the buying opportunities downturns present.
It's fast, it's safe and it's ridiculously convenient. Want to talk to someone?

Mutual funds have the potential for higher returns than something that is guaranteed, because they pool investor's money with other investors in order to take advantage of investments they wouldn't normally have access to. Mutual funds help ensure investors are exposed to the different asset classes, sectors, markets and regions that are available to them in order to gain potential higher returns.
All securities, including mutual funds present a risk of loss of capital. A mutual fund’s return will generally vary from year to year and may sometimes lose money. To understand risk better, you may also want to look at the specific risks for mutual funds and how they could affect their value. The principal risk factors for the Streetwise Portfolios include Index Risk, Equity Risk, Foreign Investment Risk, Foreign Currency Risk and Fixed Income Investment Risk. For a full list of the funds’ risk factors and details about them, see the What Are The Risks of Investing in a Mutual Fund Generally section of the funds’ simplified prospectus.
