V-List and Track Record

What is the V-List?

Our model portfolio, the Veritas V-List, has outperformed the S&P/TSX Composite Index in 15 of the past 17 years. 

It is a concentrated portfolio of 12 to 25 companies recommended by Veritas Investment Research as the best investment opportunities drawn from our firm’s research.  

The V-List outperforms because we dig deeper into the accounting to make sure that we’re not being misled in evaluating actual cash flows.

You can subscribe to the V-List.

Please watch this 8-minute video to find out how the V-List has performed and how we pick stocks for our model portfolio. Featuring Veritas President and CEO Anthony Scilipoti and Head of Research Darryl McCoubrey.
