Get a portfolio checkup with Portfolio Score

Evaluate the health of your portfolio across five key dimensions

Portfolio Score™ helps you expand your knowledge of risk exposure by comparing the portfolio’s performance against domestic and global benchmarks. Now you can get a second opinion on your portfolio, adding to your confidence. Portfolio Score also evaluates your securities—Canadian/U.S. stocks, ETFs and Canadian mutual funds—and grades your portfolio across five key dimensions:

  • Downside Protection: evaluates the portfolio’s ability to limit loss.
  • Performance: evaluates your portfolio as measured by annualized returns for different investment horizons and shows you the relationship between risk taken and returns generated.
  • Diversification: shows you if your portfolio is well-diversified, which can help mitigate volatility.
  • Income: provides a rating to indicate the level of portfolio income and/or dividends earnings.
  • Fees: assesses your portfolio's average Management Expense Ratio (MER), an annual fee that you pay when you invest in a mutual fund or ETF.

Gain confidence in your investment moves with Portfolio Simulator

Test investment scenarios, explore ideas and hone your skills

You can’t undo a market order, but thanks to Portfolio Simulator™, you can test your investing ideas before committing to them. Create test portfolios in a simulator mode. Portfolio Simulator shows you how adding or removing securities would change your portfolio’s exposure to such risks as inflation, U.S. currency and interest rate.

You can compare simulated portfolios to your active ones, adjust them to test other scenarios and save them for ongoing analysis. You can use Portfolio Score to analyze your simulated portfolios for downside protection, performance, diversification, income and fees.
