  • PWL has provided me with the peace of mind that comes from knowing my investments aren't exposed to unnecessary risks.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • We decided to sign on with Justin and Shannon at PWL Capital for several reasons: the passive investment model, good interpersonal skills, transparency with regards to fees, and adherence to the fiduciary standard. I would have no hesitation to recommend this team.

    Toronto, Ontario
  • 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.

    Thornhill, Ontario
  • 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.

    Toronto, Ontario
  • 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.

  • Firstly, I want to say I am very pleased with Graham's financial advice. Over the 7 years we have worked together, he has taken much time to listen carefully to my need to have my retirement funds safe and to the myriad work/life changes that came along.

  • We have been working with Graham from early 2009, and  joined him at PWL Capital in May 2010 . During this time Graham has acted as our financial adviser in the early years of our retirement, and has provided us with help and advice, giving  growth and security within our portfolio, in excess of our RRIF withdrawal requirements.
