COVID-19 has changed the landscape around the world and we hope that during these changing times you and yours are managing to stay safe and healthy.
At CPB we are doing our part in relation to social distancing and have reconfigured our office to provide more space for our people, allowed staff to work remotely where practical and reinforced the messages from our Government about cleanliness and hygiene.
In terms of our day to day operation, it’s business as usual. Even though some of our staff are working remotely at times, we still have access to all of our data, which means that our advisers and staff can continue to provide you with the ongoing support and service that you expect from us.
We want you to know that your well being is our priority and if you have a meeting arranged with us, whilst we are currently meeting at the office, should that change we can still discuss your needs either by telephone or video conference, (Skype, Zoom or other agreed means) as convenient. Where documents and signatures need to change hands between us, we will make suitable arrangements to allow this to happen in a secure and timely manner.
There has been concern around world about market volatility over the last year or so and we would advise (in a general sense), that now may not be the time to be making wholesale changes to your portfolios. For our clients who rely on investments for income our strategy has generally been to have a number of years income in available cash as a buffer against any sudden down turn. This allows time for market recovery and obviates the need for a sudden sale of assets, (which may crystallise a loss).
Beyond this it is important to remember that investing is often a longer term proposition, that we need to sometimes mute the voices and noise that shout at us from the media, that we need to keep our emotions in check and continue to make rational decisions and finally, that we need to review our financial plans in light of our present circumstances.
Business as usual:
So, it is business as usual. We are here still working and available and will be in touch in due course. In the meantime, contact us in need, we wish you and your families good health.
Regards from all at CPB.
