David had $10,000 in his investment account with Dynamic Investments, a mutual funds dealer. On June 28, David wants to buy 500 units in ABC Canadian Dividend Fund that has a Net Asset Value Per Unit (NAVPU) of $14.10. His friend Robert suggests that he may get a better price if he used the strategy of dollar-cost averaging. David then instructs his Dealing Representative to place a purchase order for 100 units on the first of every month starting July 1st for the next 5 months.
The orders are executed at the following NAVPUs.
July 01, $14.00
Aug. 01, $14.50
Sep. 01, $15.00
Oct. 01, $14.25
Nov. 01, $16.50
Did David get a better purchase price following the dollar-cost averaging strategy compared to making a lump-sum purchase of 500 shares on Jun 28, 20xx?
Dollar-cost averaging is a strategy that involves investing equal amounts of money at regular intervals, regardless of the price of the security. By using dollar-cost averaging, investors may lower their average cost per share and reduce the impact of volatility on their portfolios. However, this strategy does not guarantee a better purchase price than making a lump-sum purchase. In this case, David got his 500 units at a higher price than the lump sum price he would have paid. His average cost per unit was $14.65, while the lump sum price was $14.10. Therefore, D is the correct answer.

You have been researching Canadian equity mutual funds for a new client. You come across the following information.
What can you conclude from this information?
The management expense ratio (MER) is the percentage of a fund’s assets that is paid to the fund manager for operating and managing the fund. A higher MER means that more of the fund’s returns are eaten up by fees, leaving less for the investors. Therefore, Fontaine Equity Fund’s higher MER of 2.99% contributes to its lower 5-year annualized return of 11.25%, compared to Chamberlain Equity Fund’s MER of 2.57% and 5-year annualized return of 13.42%. Therefore, D is the correct answer. References: Canadian Investment Funds Course (CIFC) | IFSE Institute, Management Expense Ratio (MER): Definition and How It Works - Investopedia
Quinton, a Dealing Representative, meets with his client Banji. Banji’s Know Your Client (KYC) indicates that her risk profile is “medium’’. Banji currently has $35,000 in her account which is invested 50% in the Middleton Balanced Fund and 50% in the Hector Growth Fund. She tells Quinton that she would like to contribute an additional $10,000 to purchase the Prospect Labour-Sponsored Fund. Which of the following statements about Banji’s proposed transaction is CORRECT?
A labour-sponsored investment fund (LSIF) is a type of mutual fund that invests in small and medium-sized businesses that are not publicly traded. LSIFs are sponsored by labour unions or associations and offer tax credits to investors. However, LSIFs are also very risky and illiquid investments that may not be suitable for investors with a medium risk profile, such as Banji. Therefore, Quinton should not proceed with the purchase of the Prospect Labour-Sponsored Fund because it is not suitable for Banji based on her current KYC. Therefore, C is the correct answer.
