do try our hardest to be responsive and prove that our clients’ needs are our best interests.

It is a pleasure to share some good news for a change. Yes, the markets have stabilised and indeed moved forward usefully and it seems that the opposite of ‘death by a thousand cuts’ has been happening – a virtuous circle of regular and gradual upticks in valuations but what a difference just a few weeks make.
Welcome formally to the new clients joining us from Organic. As they will know, following our appointment in the middle of December, Organic had administrators appointed at the end of December so it was very fortunate that we had taken-over the ongoing investment management in advance of everything coming to a juddering halt…..
