... most likely but at the same time why aren't they including some of their inhouse ETFs (eg. ZWB) that I'm sure many of the clients hold as well. What a lame list.I would think the list of 80 eligible ETF's was influenced by the holdings of their existing customer base.
.. then you must not have seen the (Canada) National Bank discount brokerage's list. I don't disagree with you on the mainstream ETFs but come on, excluding most of BMO's inhouse ETFs? And so much for the 5 Stars programme for VIPs or is it NIPs now. Lame, lame, lame.Y'all are a tough group. I would not have included anything other than broad based core ETFs on the list to reinforce the message that mainstream ETFs are all that anyone needs.
I had a cursory look at the new conflict of interest statement. Nothing there that mad me go hmmmm. Nothing wrong with dosclosure. I think this speaks to AltaRed's comments above, which I agree with.It's funny that BMOIL just came out with a "Your new Conflict of Interest Statement"....hmmmm????
So what's to stop investors from double dipping? Buy ahead of dividend date, then sell after? Then find another ETF or even a stock with commission and do the same. Do all ETFs on the BMOIL lists pay dividends on the same date?
