We run the Equity Portfolio and the Bond Portfolio as separate segregated accounts for performance purposes. The exception is for RRIF accounts where it’s more valuable to merge the two so clients withdraw only from the fixed income portion of the portfolio. We also separate your Canadian Dollar and US Dollar Portfolios to reduce foreign exchange risk.
