factor-based investing. If you think that
sounds complicated, well, it is. So stay with me here. Basically,
you take many factors or characteristics
of a company, have really smart people
run those through a computer, and you end up
with an algorithm. A what? Let’s just call it
an investment strategy aimed at creating
specific outcomes. (Dinging) And while all computers are pretty much
created equal people aren’t. That’s part of the
Fidelity Factor. You see, back when
computers were big and pocket protectors
were bigger, Fidelity’s people were
committed to innovation and using their skills to bring investors worldwide opportunities
to help them realize their financial goals. So what’s new today is what we’ve been
doing for decades. That’s all part of
The Fidelity Factor. Visit fidelity.ca/ETFs.>>Rod: THERE IS THE KID, STEPHEN GOGOLEV WHO HAS ALSO BEEN A RIVAL OF CONRAD ORZEL THROUGH THE YEARS. IN FACT HE WON THE JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP BACK IN 2017.

    Would have preferred Ted commenting this…just because he is keeping his mouth shut during the skates. 😉
