Investors have been on a roller coaster ride over the past couple of weeks. The climax came at the stroke of midnight on Friday, May 10, when U.S. President Donald Trump’s newest tariffs went into effect – a 25% toll on $200 billion of Chinese goods. Then later on Friday, the negotiations ended with no material progress, and there are no formal plans to resume talks. What’s more, China retaliated the morning of May 13 by announcing tariffs on U.S. goods being imported to China.

In recent years, investor interest in “value based” investing has been on the rise. Today, this investment strategy takes many forms with environmental, social, and governance (ESG) investing leading the way. While ESG investing has been a bit of a niche strategy historically, it has been gaining more traction in the mainstream, as ESG screening has evolved to finding any well-managed companies that have very strong governance frameworks and that have the potential to be good investments. The view now is that the companies with sound ESG policies have the potential to add alpha over the long-term.As ESG filtering moves more into the mainstream, we find many companies you would not think of as being proponents of ESG investing have in fact been practicing it for many years. One such company is Foresters Asset Management.

Last time, I suggested three exchange traded funds (ETFs) for investors looking to participate in a rising market while generating some income. But the ETF market continues to grow with something for every time of investment personality. In fact, nine new ETFs were launched in March, bringing the total in Canada to more than 700. In this two-part series, I want to expand on my theme, and look at ETFs that match specific investment personalities.

The main North American stock gauges succumbed to investor anxieties over tariffs and tensions swirling around U.S.-China trade talks. Investor sentiment tanked early in the week as China announced new tariffs in retaliation for fresh tariffs imposed by the U.S. administration the week before. However, stock markets rallied through the week as the Trump Administration put on hold another round of tariffs on over $300 billion of Chinese imports. It wasn’t enough to lift markets for the week, however, as the S&P 500 Composite Index lost 0.6% on the week, while the Nasdaq Composite Index retreated 1.0%. The announcement by President Donald Trump on Friday that tariffs on Canadian and Mexican steel and aluminum will be lifted as part of the USMCA trade agreement helped keep the S&P/TSX Composite Index above water for the week, advancing 0.6%.

What to make of renewed trade tensions? We doubt recent conflict marks a fundamental shift in the global macro environment. First, President Trump’s latest manoeuvre is not altogether surprising, given his proclivity for eleventh-hour pressure tactics. By now, investors should view these policy shifts not as bugs but as central features of the administration’s dynamic.
