This brings their total gain since the 2008 downturn to in excess of 90%, after expenses. During the same five years, the TSX index advanced from 9,234 to 14,632, a total gain of 58%.

2014 was another great year for MFGI clients. While we did not double the TSX last year, more than 90% of our clients outperformed it yet again.
We had predicted a year ago that 2014 would be the year when the TSX would finally return to and pass out its 2008 high.
