We are here to help

by | Apr 12, 2020 | For Clients

I’m sure like me you have been inundated with e-mails over the last couple of weeks from businesses advising you that they have all stress tested and are working from home and it’s business as usual.

Financial Services companies, partly because of the regime we operate under are adept at business continuity and without boring you with our plan, I’m pleased to inform you that we are here and functioning as normal.

I’m sure we all agree that the last few weeks have been unprecedented and at times surreal. Every day seems to bring despairing situations and we hold out hope that soon, we’ll start to see more positive news.

And positive I believe we must be, for someone of my age who has lived through some turbulent market corrections before, albeit nothing of this nature with the health backdrop, I know customers will be relying on their IFAs to provide them with some much needed direction and guidance.

I also know that as an industry, we’ll step up and help our clients at this difficult time.

We have received a fair few questions ourselves from IFAs approaching retirement age worried about the impact of this correction on a possible business sale.

Whilst this may not be the best time to negotiate a sale as there are other more pressing priorities, the good news is, acquirers are still in the market and from what I understand, will base offers on historic valuations rather that what we are seeing in the markets at the moment.

If you have any concerns or questions at all, we are here to help and are responding to phone calls and emails as per normal

I wish you all the very best and hope you all keep safe at this time
