Currently, the investment market remains strong, with the majority of the major economic reports from June and July having shown positive results – none more so than the June employment report from the Department of Labor. Second-quarter earnings were not as poor as anticipated, despite the post-Brexit uncertainty, and core economic indicators often matched or surpassed expectations. Working so closely within the market means that John often understands the way in which it operates better than most, and as such his firm, which is committed to supporting both clients and its industry peers, produces monthly economic updates. He discusses why these are so important for his clients and those working in the industry.
“Here at Lindsey & Lindsey Wealth Management we like to share the experience and knowledge we have gained through our many years of collective experience working in the wealth management sector. As such, we provide monthly updates on the state of the economy, as well as a blog on the latest financial matters, both of which are highly useful for anyone seeking to learn more about the current economic outlook. Also, we regularly comment on or contribute to articles in the press on the wealth management space so that we can showcase our talent and help the wider industry.
“For clients, our website boasts a dedicated resource centre, and our blog regularly hosts articles on the finer points of investing in order to ensure that they have the knowledge and understanding to make informed decisions. This is particularly vital as we understand just how important wealth management and estate planning is.”
Going forward, the firm has some exciting plans for expansion as it seeks to grow in order to work with a wider client base, whilst at the same time retaining the high standards of service which it has become renowned for, as John outlines.
“Lindsey & Lindsey Wealth Management is hiring new staff in order to grow and be able to work with more clients. We are always looking for dedicated, hardworking staff to work with us and help us to continue to support our clients and integrate new ones into the business.”
Ultimately, John is keen to emphasise the firm’s commitment to supporting client and providing the highest standards of service which are compliant with all relevant regulations, in order to safeguard returns for investors.
