Foreign Exchange Investment and Track Record

CWS Capital uses foreign exchange as an investment vehicle by making gains (or losses) from the fluctuations between currencies.

Benefits of the Foreign Exchange Market:

1) Largest and most accessible market in the world - Because of the size, there is far less ability for one institution or country to manipulate the movement of any one currency.

2) Currencies move independent of the stock market - Whether the stock market booms or crashes, the currency market will not be affected.

3) Ability to create more predictable, stable returns - This means relatively small movements in currency values can translate into large returns as compared to stocks.

4) Currencies are backed by Governments and their central banks - This equals security for your investment, giving a larger measure of legitimacy, stability, and consistency to the underlying investment.

Historical annual ROI:

2017 - 42.0%
2018 - 27.2%
2019 - 30.9%
2020 - 46.9%
2021 - 41.3%

YTD as of July 31, 2022 - 25.2%

- Mark’s interest in the foreign exchange market as an alternative investment started when he worked in banking.

- Fascinated by it, he spent a lot of time learning more to see how he and his family could benefit from it.

- The result of that was Canadian Wealth Strategies (CWS), which he founded in 2013 and then rebranded to CWS Capital.

- With a strong backing of friends and family he launched the fund and has worked hard to make it grow year over year.
