In today's Globe and Mail there is an article pointing out that fund managers continue to do poorly compared to index funds. There really isn't any reason to invest with active managers, and the data continues to support that. Of index funds, I personally like the TD Efunds due to their low MERs and green approach of not mailing out paper. Also the iShares exchange traded funds are extremely good value if your investing patterns cause the brokerage fees to not be an issue. ING's Streetwise Funds are ok too but they do have MERs close to double what they should be.
