COVID-19 - BUSINESS AS USUAL (WELL ALMOST!)The need for good financial advice has not gone away and we have worked hard to ensure that we can continue to provide advice during this challenging period. Indeed, rarely has the need for investment and retirement advice been more important in such turbulent economic circumstances. We have adapted our approach due to the current restrictions and our team members are working safely from home but we are still able to receive, distribute and deal with post. This, combined with technology, emails and telephone communication, means we will continue to provide the usual high standards of service to our existing clients – as well as welcoming new enquiries. If you are looking for financial advice please use the “contact” link on our website or telephone 01246 559955 or email simon@shorts.uk.com
