Added security & complete focus on you

As of January 3rd this year, some new regulations have been put forward by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) called the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive or MIFID.

One of the key elements of these guidelines was that Financial Advisors should consider recording (audio only) all client conversations, both on the telephone and in face-to-face meetings. This measure is designed to offer security and transparency in the event that any interaction needs to be referred back to for any reason.

Because of the types of service we offer at Expert Wealth Management; as a matter of best practice we have decided to follow these guidelines and initiate the recording of all client conversations.

We feel that by recording our interactions with you, we’ll be able to increase our focus and engagement with what really matters… Your life goals

In short, by removing the need to take notes or to try and remember certain elements of what is said, we’ll be able to better serve you. And of course offer you complete security in the unlikely event of a dispute. Please be assured that we’ll store all recordings in a highly secure digital location, and they will not be shared with anyone outside of our organisation. We’ll also comply with the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) which came into effect on 25th May, and will destroy recordings when no longer relevant.

The change will take effect immediately and we’ll be updating our client agreement to reflect the new policy. In the meantime, should you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Expert Opinion…

Markets fell in 2018 – but keep this in perspective…

Jonathan, February 4th, 2019

December 2018 dished up a rather distasteful present for the holiday period. Many lines were written in the broadsheets about the global equity market falls, but were they really anything out of the ordinary? The challenge for investors today is that they have been spoiled by the run of strong returns since the Credit Crisis, with only one down year since 2008 until, that is, 2018.
