Should I defer my CPP or QPP?

For most Canadians, the Canadian Pension Plan or Quebec Pension Plan is the only guaranteed pension they’re going to get. So, a critical decision for your financial health in retirement is what age you opt to take your government pension.

The Terrible Truth about Hedge Funds

Hedge funds represent a fascinating field of interest for two reasons. First, they involve the most sophisticated strategies and instruments, such as short selling, derivative products and leverage. Hedge fund managers have unequalled freedom of action, with a goal of maximizing profits.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I’ve worked with a number of firms and what I can say is that PWL is the most methodical and client-focused advisory firm I’ve come across. They also happen to be the least salesy – which is very refreshing. When I consult with PWL, I know that they’re really recommending what’s right for me and that there is no hidden agenda or commission that is biasing any recommendations. The team also goes out of their way to service clients. They jumped through a number of hoops just to allow me to save a few basis points – they really didn’t have to – but that’s the extent to which they care, and that really builds trust.

  • 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.

  • PWL Capital has handled my finances for about 10 years. My confidence level is high as I start into a time of life when significant transitions are made. I rest assured that PWL and its staff are on top of my financial affairs and work within a conservative, reliable and standards-driven organization.

  • I’ve realized that I can’t be an expert in everything. I don’t have the time or patience to study up on finances and investments. Leave it to the pros. Cameron takes my pile of money, and makes it bigger. This is awesome.
