Most of us love to hear about get-rich-quick schemes that will double our investment overnight. The allure of these propositions increases when the underlying idea is new, or complicated, or sounds like a sure bet, backed by technology or endorsed by several of our peers. Some of these ideas that have become popular recently include cryptocurrencies, marijuana and gold.

However, for consistent long-term financial health, sticking to the ideas that have worked over several investment cycles and have proven track records is usually the best bet.

One of these ideas is Canadian large cap equity. As of Sept. 28, the S&P/TSX Composite Index has returned 3.9% from a year earlier, and just under 1% for the year to date. Over a longer timeframe, however, the S&P/TSX Composite Index has produced a total annualized return of 8% over the past 15 years.
