The Canadian Couch Potato

Based on the writing of Dan Bartolotti, The Canadian Couch Potato is a blog introducing personal investors to the strategies of basing their portfolios on index funds. While the blog has tips and information specific to Canadians, the Couch Potato investment strategy (also called Lazy Portfolios) can be applied by other investors as well.

"This blog is designed for Canadians who want to learn more about investing using index mutual funds and exchange-traded funds (ETFs). In 2011, it was selected by The Globe and Mail as the best investing blog in Canada.

The Couch Potato strategy—also called index investing, or passive investing—is growing in popularity as more people become disillusioned with mutual funds and stock-picking strategies that try, usually in vain, to beat the market."

You can also read about Dan's companion book, The MoneySense Guide to the Perfect Portfolio.
