My TD e-Series TFSA - 1 year laterIt was a year ago in April 2012, that I finally transferred my whole TFSA to TD Waterhouse to purchase their e-Series funds. The initial process was a real pain in the ass but looking at the gains a year later I think it just may have been worth it.
On my original contribution of $20,347.37, I have posted a year over year gain of 12.0% amounting to $2,445.24 and including $448.72 worth of reinvested dividends.
Market value as of April 10, 2013:
$22,792.61 (including reinvested dividends)
+12.0% or +$2,445.24
The Canadian funds posted marginal gains while the US and Intl funds performed impressively well by posting gains of 17.7% and 18.2% respectively.
Here's a further breakdown of the funds I hold and their results.
TD Canadian Index - e (TDB900): +7.0% or +$431.55
TD Canadian Bond Index - e (TDB909): +4.6% or +$188.40
TD International Index - e (TDB911): +18.2% or +$749.05
TD US Index - e (TDB902): +17.7% or +$1,076.22
Total Dividends reinvested: $488.72
I'm looking forward to topping up my TFSA contribution this year and hopefully seeing further gains.
