As we head into the last month in which you can make a registered retirement savings plan (RRSP) contribution for 2009, we've launched a special RRSP 2010 website and lined up a series of discussions to answer all of your related queries.

First up: On Monday, Feb 1st Dan Hallett, director of asset management at Oakville, Ont.-based HighView Asset Management Inc., answered your questions on how mutual funds can fit into an RRSP portfolio. Should stock-market wary investors buy balanced funds, which invest in stocks and bonds? Or is it time to return to equity funds?
