Q&A: Som Seif on the best ETF strategies for 2014

For this week's live discussion at Inside the Market, we are joined by Som Seif, one of Canada's top investment-industry entrepreneurs.

Som founded Claymore Investments, the exchange-traded fund company that was sold to Blackrock in 2012. Som last year started a new company, Purpose Investments, which sells low-cost mutual funds and ETFs that use hedge fund and other strategies that previously weren't available to retail investors through online brokerage accounts. Purpose also sells unique corporate class structure ETFs that can result in significant tax savings for income investors.
