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.

  • Excellent approach to hands off investing…have not looked at financial news in over 2 years … index investments are doing well and the PWL team takes care of the details.

  • I have found the level of service working with Nancy to be personal, respectful and comprehensive. She meets with me personally twice a year to review the performance of my portfolio; we regularly review my tolerance for risk. She responds directly to my requests for advice. I have found Cheryl, Nancy’s assistant, to be very efficient and helpful in all my dealings with her. After several years of working with Nancy, I ended my dealings with a second advisor and now work exclusively with Nancy.

  • It’s exactly how everyone said it would be – I don’t spend any time worrying about my investments.

  • Shannon and Justin are a rare find in the industry. Before switching I was being charged up to 2.5% in hidden fees. PWL took the time to set me up with a plan that openly states their fees and clearly articulated the nature of the investments. It’s refreshing to meet a team so up-to-date with the latest technology. I can’t recommend this team’s services enough.

  • 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.

  • They provide simple, sound advice without any pressure to buy a specific product.
