An Update from Pilgrim - 27.3.2020

9th May 2020

27.3.2020

Good afternoon,

So we’re all in lockdown now.

Whilst the news still hung in the air Madigan (our daughter, still smarting from having had her A levels cancelled and having worked very hard for them) looked at Hamish (our second son, home from Uni and trying to complete his Finals online) suggested that it might be safer if Covid-19 got to him before she did as “this house just isn’t big enough for the both of us”! Perhaps a natural response when coming to terms with the news that you have to be holed up with an older brother for an indeterminate length of time. I suggested that some patience, perspective and goodwill would see us through and might, perhaps, strengthen such a tenuous sibling bond. You can imagine the looks.

Whilst we are reminded in such circumstances that family bonds, personal relationships and our own good health form the central tenets of ‘what makes us happy’, we at Pilgrim will remain focused on maintaining safe custody of your wealth and making the right decisions on your behalf. The entire team, bar one brave soul who continues to man the office, are all now working effectively and safely from home. We are immensely proud of how everyone has pulled together and risen to such a challenge, to ensure that all the normal services that we offer you continue to be available.

We remain open for business and receptive to any calls, comments or suggestions that you may have so please contact your adviser in the first instance or email me directly. There will be regular contact from us to keep you informed of all relevant matters.

Patience and perspective will see us through to the end, and it’s important to accept that this will not be forever. Our normal way of life will return and markets will recover, because they always do.

In the meantime batten down the hatches and see you on the other side.

With all good wishes,

Steve Brady
