COVID-19: Here to support you

Share on print

Read or watch the news, and you’ll encounter a world that’s volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous. Glance at a stock market’s performance over the course of a few weeks, and what stands out is probably not the general direction of travel, but the short-term see-sawing of prices – especially during a volatile period. Those characteristics can make the task of planning for you and your family’s future feel all the more daunting.

In times like these it’s important to speak to someone you trust. Integritas Wealth Partners are equipped to keep your eyes focused on the horizon and work with you to help achieve your long-term financial goals.

As investors, it can be all too tempting to try to predict the future, or react to events as they happen. Yet the dangers inherent in such an approach are clear. On the one hand, your emotions can prevent you achieving your investment goals – even long-term investors can all too easily respond emotionally to short-term volatility; and make bad decisions as a result. On the other, events are unpredictable at the best of times, and perhaps especially just now. On top of all this, it’s not always easy to sort the facts from the fake news. Whilst the exact route through the noise may not always be clear, the value of advice couldn’t be higher at a time like this.

Beyond our services and advice, we have compiled a list of tools, resources and contacts which may be useful in the current environment.
