    Recently my brother asked me for advice on a good place to park some money. He said he probably wouldn’t need it for two years. I thought Money.ca reader might like to see the three ETF’s I suggested. here they are:

    PIMCO Enhanced Short Maturity ETF (MINT)

    Category:

    Ultrashort Bond

    Fund Family:

    PIMCO

    Net Assets:

    Yield:

    1.07%

    Fund Inception Date:

    Nov 16, 2009

    Legal Type:

    Exchange Traded Fund

    The investment seeks maximum current income, consistent with preservation of capital and daily liquidity. The fund invests at least 65% of its total assets in a diversified portfolio of Fixed Income Instruments of varying maturities, which may be represented by forwards. "Fixed Income Instruments" include bonds, debt securities and other similar instruments issued by various U.S. and non-U.S. public- or private-sector entities. The average portfolio duration of this fund will vary based on Pacific Investment Management Company LLC's ("PIMCO") forecast for interest rates and will normally not exceed one year.

    The investment seeks attractive tax-exempt income, consistent with preservation of capital. The fund invests at least 80% of its assets in a diversified portfolio of debt securities whose interest is, in the opinion of bond counsel for the issuer at the time of issuance, exempt from federal income tax ("Municipal Bonds"). It may invest 25% or more of its total assets in Municipal Bonds that finance similar projects, such as those relating to education, health care, housing, transportation, and utilities, and 25% or more of its total assets in industrial development bonds.
