Covid-19: An update from Hamnett Wealth Management

We hope this blog post finds you, your family and friends well, healthy and safe. During this unsettling time, our main priority is keeping our staff, our clients and everyone’s family safe and protected. 

We are following all the guidance and advice that the Government and Public Health England are giving. The whole Hamnett Wealth team are now working from home and managing to hold appointments via the telephone or video links.   

As well as the daily worry of what is happening in the world, we also understand how stressful it can be for our clients when the stock market valuations fall so dramatically in such a short space of time.  That is why we believe that it is imperative to invest across a wide range of different asset classes, thereby reducing the volatility in the event of a downturn.  We also need to accept that there are going to be short term problems in the market.

However, we are confident that once the pandemic plays out,  the markets will respond quickly. The world will certainly look a different place from now on and the Government is looking to ensure that they can look after the nation in the short term.  They have done lots of things to support businesses so far, and yesterday announced a support package for the self-employed.  Full details of all the Government support available can be found at www.businesssupport.gov.uk

It’s important to remember that when the financial landscape changes, to not respond would be a missed opportunity. We recommend you seek advice from a professional Independent Financial Adviser to review your investments and ensure that your current financial plan is still working for you now and will continue to do so in the future. 

Please contact us on 0114 235 3500 for a free initial review meeting which we can do over the telephone or via video link.
