A message from our CEO
Dear Valued Client,
As the world is coming to terms with the impact of COVID-19, our hearts go out to those directly impacted. For many, it has also helped remind us of what's most important in our lives - like family and friends. This would not be possible without those working so tirelessly to keep us all safe during these unprecedented times. They are the true heroes!
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and understanding as we evolve our ways of working and adapt to changing business realities. Although we closed the doors to our physical offices to ensure everyone's safety, our teams have been working around the clock to ensure we are fully operational. We are here to help and support you and your family.
I also greatly appreciate hearing all of your positive feedback on how valuable our advice and communications have been during these unprecedented times. Our Consultants, our teams and our industry leading partners are dedicated to keeping you informed and delivering the latest news and insights. As a reminder, you can find all of this on our website www.IG.ca and your IG Consultant is available to support you and answer all your questions.
In the coming days you will receive your quarterly investment statements. With all the market volatility we've seen during the month of March, your statement may not read as you hope or expect. While you might be seeing headlines about significant drops in the market, it is important to note that our diversified approach to managing investments has helped insulate many of our portfolios from the full impact.
It's also important to remember that, over the past 70 years, there have been instances when the S&P/TSX has seen historic volatility and significant declines. Yet each time it has recovered, and at a higher level. Your personalized financial plan takes these market fluctuations into account when forecasting your long term goals.
With more than 90 years of experience, our firm has effectively managed market volatility many times before. During the last financial downturn many Canadians sold at the wrong time. However, we successfully guided our clients through those challenging times and helped them benefit from the strong market recovery. That's why it is so important to remain focused on your long-term goals and to stay invested.
I want to thank you for your trust and confidence. IG is here to support you and your family during these unprecedented times. If you have questions, please reach out toyour IG Consultant. They are here to help.
Above all, stay safe and healthy.
President and CEO, IG Wealth Management
