2020 has been a year like no other, particularly when it comes to navigating volatility within financial markets and managing your client and customer expectations. In these unprecedented times of health, social, and economic crisis, it has placed additional demands on advisers and other finance professionals.
So it is essential to recognise the vital role they play in guiding their clients into what is for many, unknown territory.
Back in February, global equity markets dropped between 20%-30%, credit spreads widened, and the level of volatility in the market hit levels that have not been experienced since the global financial crisis of 2008.
These factors will have had a significant impact on investors everywhere. Add to this the way the government has responded to the crisis and it is clear that this will have a severe effect on many individuals' financial futures.
Financial advisers and the broader financial services industry has the opportunity to show their value to lead the way for investors, ensuring they effectively communicate the path ahead through future periods of volatility, with the only real certainty being uncertainty, as we head into 2021.
Upcoming Webinar: What does 2021 have in store for advisers and clients?
