Unique Value Proposition

Meeting a lifetime of objectives

The philosophy behind PWL’s wealth management framework underpins our approach to managing investment portfolios. Rather than simply allowing low risk to dictate low returns, PWL Capital sets clear investment objectives and employs proactive strategies to pursue them. These strategies are based on the investment science of Nobel Prize-winning Modern Portfolio Theory and asset pricing models developed by Eugene Fama at the University of Chicago and Kenneth French at Dartmouth University.

Adding Value; Reducing Risk

Markets are Efficient
Active managers can’t consistently beat the market. While the market price might not always be right, efforts to identify undervalued stocks are not rewarded consistently.

Diversification is Key
It reduces the impact of individual securities and enables investors to scientifically employ the risk factors that offer higher expected returns.

Risk and Return Are Related
Increasing the expected return on a portfolio requires an increased exposure to the equity market and/or to riskier Value and Small Cap companies.

Portfolio Structure Explains Performance
Asset allocation, not stock picking or market timing, accounts for most of the performance in a diversified investment strategy.

Costs & Taxes Matter
Investors only keep net returns, so every dollar saved is a dollar earned.
