Asset Allocation in Plain English

Have you ever noticed? What’s clear to an “insider” isn’t always so obvious to everyone else. Doctors, lawyers, engineers … investment advisors. I’m afraid we’ve all been guilty of tossing around too many technical terms without defining them first.

  • Graham, more recently joined by Susan, has been our financial advisor since 2006 and we moved to PWL with him in 2010. Graham’s ability to analyze each client’s situation, preferences and needs seems outstanding to us.

  • 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.

  • Justin and Shannon offer a level of personal service and expertise that I have not found from any other advisor. The ability to have nearly all of my financial needs met in one place is invaluable and, even more importantly, I appreciate knowing that I will always receive a prompt response to my questions.

  • We started using Nancy as our sole investment advisor almost 3 years ago. In that time, we have never had a cause for regret. We are very happy with PWL’s investment strategy and we know we can largely “ignore” our investments, trusting that our portfolio is being well managed. Nancy takes the time to understand her clients and tailors communication to their needs. She is very flexible in meeting as frequently or infrequently as we prefer and we always find our meetings with her informative and worthwhile.

  • We both felt very comfortable with the planning process and the obvious skills of Shannon and Justin. We feel confident about working together in the future with all members of the team.

  • We have received outstanding guidance and support from Justin and Shannon. We especially value the math-based rationale and emphasis on asset location and tax implications. And then there is the highly responsive and accommodating style—including custom performance reports—reasonable fees, and willingness to go above and beyond.
