Victoria resident Trish Shwart, who is 60, recently moved her savings out of “a large, expensive investment firm” to an online brokerage. She wants to build a low-cost portfolio of about two-thirds fixed income and one-third equities, including real estate investment trusts (REITs). For tax- efficiency, she should hold the equities in her taxable account and the bonds and REITs in registered accounts.
