Canadian Portfolio Manager: Introducing the “Light” ETF Portfolios

When I first watched Star Wars, I thought it would be impossible to improve on its perfection. What a blast it was! But that was before I became a huge fan of the Spaceballs spoof of the same. Likewise, as fond as we are of the original Canadian Portfolio Manager (CPM) model ETF portfolios, you may have noticed we’ve made some big changes lately. Most notably, there are now four CPM portfolio levels of complexity to choose from: Light, Ridiculous, Ludicrous, or Plaid.
