(2018-04-10 LPA) A Globe and Mail article states that the Ladies have made a gross error in their claim of 23% return on investment. The Globe and Mail says that audited returns for this club average only 9%, while the market would have given a 14% return. Other comments suggest a lack of consideration for the situation of the investor; the Ladies' approach is not for all investors. Caution is warranted.
