Devilish Details Can Derail Your Small-Cap Stock Funds

Most investors accept that small-cap stocks have outperformed large-cap stocks over the long-term. This “size effect” was the first market anomaly to challenge the single-factor, capital asset pricing model. Unfortunately, as I’ll explain in this post, I’m unaware of any funds currently available to a DIY investor that DO properly apply the small-cap effect.

  • I chose to work with Cameron and PWL because I felt I would receive honest advice, fair and simple pricing, and an amazing product. Cameron doesn’t push investments: he educates me with what strategies work for my needs. Anyone looking for personalized, honest investment strategies needs to have a chat with Cameron – especially after one of his great talks!

  • We chose Nancy Graham and PWL because of their 100% transparent management of our investments, and their calm, rational approach to investment strategies. Unlike most other investment advisors, PWL chooses investment vehicles without hidden commission and transaction fees, and thus do not suggest transactions that benefit the advisor more than the investor. Our investments, as selected on Nancy’s advice and expertise, have lower costs than commission-based products, leaving more return for us.

  • PWL has provided me with the peace of mind that comes from knowing my investments aren’t exposed to unnecessary risks. They’ve always made a point of promptly answering any questions I’ve had and processing all my instructions in an expeditious manner, which has led to a very positive working relationship.

  • Cameron and team were most helpful in making our transition from US to Canada as smooth as possible given several complications and they have continued to provide guidance and advice that keeps us feeling confident about where we are headed.

    They have spared us sleepless nights.

  • I completely agree with PWL’s investment philosophy as well as greatly valuing their customer service.

    Doug McKenzie Managing Director
  • Excellent past experience. Personal touch. Advisors take the time to learn what my goals are and my comfort level in terms of risk. Regular follow ups.
