    Hi Andrew

    With the Globe & Mail Strategy series (Value, Growth, Dividend & Index Investing) when are they looking to review portfolio's?

    3 monthly

    6 monthly

    Or just at the end of the series (12 months)?

      I don't know when they will mention returns. But 1 year returns (even 5-10 year returns) are quite irrelevant, so it becomes nothing more than a distraction, unfortunately.
