We are living through an event never experienced during our lifetimes. The coronavirus (COVID-19) is disrupting the routine of our daily lives. We are all adjusting our schedules, routines, and work locations to protect the well being of each other and doing everything we can to keep our lives as normal as possible.
To mitigate the health risks that currently exist for everyone, Jackson Thornton Asset Management has transitioned to a work-from-home approach for our team. With our technology capabilities, we will be able to communicate with you and continue business operations as normal. (For example, calls to our office direct lines are forwarded directly to our cell phones.)
A few brief thoughts to help us navigate this crisis:
- Look back: Unfortunately, throughout history, crisis events occur. During these times, financial markets undergo dramatic declines. Over time, markets have recovered from every past crisis.
- Today: Remain disciplined to your investment strategy. Your investment strategy was developed and structured to best manage market uncertainly and volatility, especially in times such as these.
- Look ahead: Focus on the long term; investing is a lifetime and long term proposition.
We are thankful you have trusted us to serve as your investment advisor. We continue to monitor the markets and each client’s individualized investment strategy. Please know that we are working diligently for you during this most difficult season in all of our lives.
Stay safe and show a family member, friend, or colleague an extra act of love over the days ahead. Love gives us life and the ability to endure times such as these.
