Horizon Canada just offered a swap based Canadian bond ETF, which will be trading on the Toronto stock exchange tomorrow.

Horizon already offers a Canadian and U.S. swap-based stock ETF.  By coupling these equity indexes with this new bond offering, expats won’t have to pay capital gains taxes or dividend with-holding taxes. I explain how this works in my upcoming book, due this fall. 

I didn’t think the tax benefits of being an expatriate Canadian could get any better.  But they just did.

Incidentally, I already own Horizon’s two equity indexes in my personal portfolio.
