A global pandemic. What does it mean in a global economy?
Things are changing fast. There will not be a “normal” in a few weeks as we knew it.
The epidemic will change business relationships.
And since this site covers the financial services industry, it should impact portfolios and investment advice and communications. No need for more happy-talk client letters. Your clients will not believe you. Or, if you just stick to the same old client advice, your client will know you are out-of-touch or not authentic. Your firm’s and personal credibility will be at stake if you stick to the old “things will be alright soon” and “market rebound” message. Your clients know that will not happen.
So, be creative. Be flexible. Many businesses will have to re-invent themselves.
