Our commitment to you

A message regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear valued client,

The past few weeks have been unprecedented in many ways. The COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) outbreak has impacted people all over the world and shaken financial markets. Our hearts go out to the people who have been affected by this, and we hope that together, our diligence to follow the direction of health officials reduces the impact on all our families.

You have likely heard about the impact the outbreak is having on financial markets, and you will see the effect of this volatility in your portfolio.

The value of advice can help you weather the turmoil

Investing during volatile times can challenge your discipline and commitment. Although everyone has a view on which direction the markets will go, no one can accurately predict risk or predict what will drive the markets through a correction, but good advice can help ease your mind and keep you focused on the right things.

The expertise of a financial professional:

  • Helps you overcome emotional impulses and keep things in perspective and on track for what’s important to you.
  • Supports you in making rational decisions to help you reach your goals.
  • Helps you mitigate risks and take advantage of opportunities in the market that are right for you and your specific goals.

You can rely on your Manulife Securities advisor to help you do that.

We’re well-positioned to navigate this evolving situation

In an abundance of caution, we took early measures to ensure the health and safety of our employees, and continued operations. We’re here for you and your advisor. We’re proud of our employees, who continue to remain focused, committed and resilient.

If you have any questions or concerns about the current situation or your investments, reach out and talk to your advisor. While social distancing is important in our fight against the virus, there are a variety of other means available, including phone, email, or video conferencing.

We continue to closely monitor this evolving situation and will keep you informed on our website at www.manulifesecurities.ca.
