It was a stellar year for Canadian markets, with the S&P/TSX Composite Index producing a total return of 20% in 2016. But has the market climbed too fast, too soon? That's what several Canadian fund managers are worried about, though many still think there are opportunities to be had. We spoke to five investment experts about where they think the market is headed in 2017.

We've seen a big rebound in markets coming into 2017, and while we all like strong markets, the unfortunate truth is that if returns are going to outpace growth in the underlying value of the business, then that tempers our enthusiasm about absolute returns. We still think there are opportunities for active managers who can take advantage of the continued dislocation in the Canadian equity market. So while we're cautiously optimistic about absolute returns we think there's a great opportunity to generate strong relative returns.
