The Impact of March 2020 on Your Portfolio

We have just gone through one of the most difficult months for investors. The worst part of it wasn’t the steep decline in our portfolio values, it’s been not knowing what’s coming up next. While it is surreal to see the world economy freeze up due to the global pandemic, it’s important to remember that equity bear markets, and the damage they inflict on portfolios, are part of an investor’s life.

  • Justin, Shannon and PWL Capital have demonstrated a confident professionalism and realistic understanding of my financial situation and expected requirements. They have given me the sense of security and trust that I am looking for: I feel that I am in good hands.

  • I take great comfort in the rational, professional and personal services provided by Nancy Graham and PWL Capital. This firm is not about speculation or hot tips. They take the time to explain how their portfolios are built, the research that supports their approach and most importantly they take the time to understand you and your family. As a professional accountant, I respect the integrity of their process and the logic of their philosophy. If you are looking for investment advice I suggest that spending an hour with Nancy, a portfolio manager at PWL, would be a good investment of your time.

  • We were looking for a management style that would reduce portfolio volatility and generate long-term stable growth. And we found it with Cameron’s pragmatic, no-nonsense approach to investment strategy.

  • Honest, knowledgeable information. There is a big focus on teaching the basis for their decisions instead of just saying what they will do.

    Cameron has taught me a lot about how to invest my money in smarter ways. He took time to teach me how stock markets work and where stock market returns actually come from, instead of just suggesting specific funds and products to buy. I have never had another financial advisor that is this dedicated to their clients understanding of money and financial planning.

  • I sought out the services of Dan Bortolotti at PWL after being frustrated with several other advisors over the years. He has exceeded my expectations: Dan is the ultimate professional, very thorough in all aspects of his work and an excellent communicator who makes even complex issues easy to understand. He takes the time to understand my family’s financial needs and always acts in my best interest. I have finally found peace of mind with Dan and PWL Capital Toronto as my advisors.

  • I have been a client of Nancy Graham’s since 2008. I came to her just prior to my divorce without a clue about how to deal with the financial aspects of this life change. Nancy guided me gently into the world of investments, taxes, and real estate while helping me get a handle on my spending habits. Planning for the future and retirement were a first priority. Also, Nancy has made some very wise investments and my portfolio is healthy even in these tough times. I’m pretty sure I would not be able to live without her now.
