Our Operations Director Neil Boulton has issued the following message in response to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
At a time when we are all having to place our faith in the National Health Service, politicians and scientists to secure our future, I would like to reassure you that we continue to devote all of our energies to the challenges of looking after your wealth.
Now, perhaps more than ever, we are reminded that health comes before wealth, but this does not mean that the care and custody of wealth stops, or even pauses.
Like many long standing businesses Forrester Boyd Wealth has encountered all manner of crises and upsets over the years, and will no doubt face many more. That much is certain. This crisis, which unlike most other recent ones threatens human life, is scaring generations who in developed nations have never had to live through such uncertain times. We will come through it, and we will learn a great deal from it as a result.
The team here at Forrester Boyd Wealth are presently fit and well, and we are well organised to run the entire firm from remote destinations, if need be, indefinitely. Therefore with effect from the close of business today, 23 March 2020, all our offices will be closed to protect the health and safety of our staff and visitors. We will still deliver our services to you and be here for you, albeit remotely. Our phone lines and emails will continued to be answered and we will be here to answer your questions and assist you.
We will continue to keep you closely informed of our views on events, and how we feel it is appropriate to react from a financial perspective. I am very proud of our team, who have all risen to face the challenge. I appreciate that our challenge pales into insignificance compared to those faced by a great many others, but I promise that our commitment to you, our clients, remains undaunted.
I hope you know that you can rely on us throughout this threat to our lives and the health of the world. At the same time, I hope that you and your family stay safe and well.
