The Performance page allows you access to your current and historical portfolio performance.

The Performance data is presented according to the Performance Groups, as established with your PWL team.

Performance Page

The Performance of your PWL portfolio is presented as both Annual Returns and Annualized Compound Returns.

Annual Returns are the rates of return, expressed as a percentage, that represent the cumulative effect of the gains and losses on an original amount of capital over a defined calendar year. The Year-to-date value is displayed first, followed by the previous 5 years performance data. If you are a new client of PWL, your returns will be displayed monthly.

Annualized Compound Returns represent the average year-over-year growth rate of an investment over a number of years.  They are presented according to YTD data, 1 year, 3 years, 5 years, 10 years and since inception.

The Year-to-date performance data is calculated monthly and you will be able to see the “as of” date over each performance group’s section.

In order to quickly access the performance numbers you are interested in viewing, you can either scroll through the various performance groups, or click on the name of the group in the menu.
