For balances of $100 to $1499 we invest you in a “Small Balance portfolio,” which obtains similar exposure to the full Standard and Responsible Investing portfolios through the purchase of fewer ETFs. We offer a Small Balance portfolio to help get more Canadians off the side-lines and investing for their future. Our Small Balance portfolio is necessary because we do not purchase fractions of ETFs (these are also known as “fractional shares”), which makes the construction of a diversified portfolio more difficult for values below $1500.
When your account balance rises above $1500 we would transition it to a full Standard or Responsible Investing portfolio (which contain four to six ETFs) at no additional cost and no action required by you
