Investment Strategies  

I'm 80 per cent in stocks - am I taking too much risk?
I have about 10 years until I retire and I am becoming more concerned about preserving my capital. My portfolio is about 80 per cent in equities - mostly high-quality dividend payers. Should I sell some of my stocks and go to to cash/bonds or maybe hedge my portfolio with an exchange-traded fund that bets against the market?

Tax & Estate Planning Strategies 
Leaving an inheritance? Here are the most rewarding options for spreading the wealth
Most Canadians are worried about ensuring that their savings will last as long as they do - but a select group are pretty sure that their money will outlast them. And, while it might seem counterintuitive to a lot of people, many wealthy Canadians worry an awful lot about their nest egg and how best to manage it.

I'd buy European stocks before US stocks in near term: Siegel
Longtime Wall Street bull Jeremy Siegel said Monday he sees more upside in the next three to five years from European stocks than in U.S. equities.   The Wharton School finance professor told CNBC's " Squawk Box" the continued turmoil in the financial markets is a buying opportunity for European stocks, following last week's vote by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union.

Assets fully priced in and vulnerable to even small negative surprises: Pimco
NEW YORK - Pacific Investment Management Co., which oversees more than US$1.5 trillion in assets, slightly upgraded its forecast for world gross domestic product, from around 2.5 per cent this year to between 2.5 per cent and 3 per cent in 2017, but cautioned that many asset classes appeared overvalued.  In Pimco's latest Cyclical Outlook released on Wednesday, the firm said its baseline forecast through 2017 is for a continuous global economic expansion, mostly supportive monetary and fiscal policies, and broadly range-bound markets.
