EP 25 – Nick McCullum on ETFs, Index Funds, Stocks and the Importance of Diversification

Our guest this episode is Nick McCullum. Nick is a software developer and Director of Growth at Passiv. Passiv is portfolio management software that makes it easy to manage your own investment portfolio. Set a target portfolio, rebalance with 1 click, and get notified when your portfolio drifts using the tool available on passiv.com.

As awesome as real estate is as an investment vehicle, diversification is still important. With Nick, we go over the difference between ETFs, index funds, mutual funds, stocks, bonds, how it all works, and how you can use these vehicles to create a diversified portfolio outside of real estate.  

We also discuss the Canadian Couch Potato portfolio, where to invest the extra cash flow from your real estate investments, the importance of rebalancing your portfolio from time to time, and how Passiv helps you do that with a single click.
