Weekly update: Nigel Reeves

Another week of home working has passed,  many people are reporting it to be a fairly positive experience. Some saying that we will see permanent changes to the work place when we come out of this period.

Despite the current events we are aiming for the constant state of ‘business as usual’. We are finding that lots of clients and new contacts are wanting to discuss: investments, pensions and retirement right now.

It’s important for our contacts to understand that our teams at Reeves Independent are fully operating and able to conduct our usual high levels of service and advice.

It’s worth pointing out that coronavirus is having an impact on some areas of our new business, but nothing that we cannot deal with at the moment. We carry on monitoring the situation.

With many property funds freezing activity, we are seeing some obstacles to some of our transactions. This can have an impact on investment advice and fund switches together with some pension switch activity.

A number of final salary scheme providers are also delaying various parts of their services which is having an impact on some clients that are going through the process with our third party introduction firms.

It’s very important that everyone keeps abreast of the changes that are taking place and we will always ensure you are fully in the loop and plans are modified as and where required!

The markets continue to recover from the falls of a few weeks ago. We remain cautious about where they will go over the coming months. It’s vital that clients are aware of risk and their own timescale of events when considering their pension investments. Keep a close eye and keep talking must be the best advice.

Zoom has been very useful for many over the past weeks. This takes us to a new idea of hosting a meet the team over zoom. A question time type meeting aimed at new clients who may want to meet and speak with the senior members of the Reeves business and the client service team.
