We hope this e-newsletter finds you well and anxiously anticipating the beautiful signs of Spring! Image result for spring emoji 

With the dawn of a new season, we wish to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued business but also for your support and patience over the past year.  With major changes to our Worldsource computer systems, being down a staff member, and having a busy fall & RRSP season, we may have lagged somewhat in our activity and response standards. 

Spring has sprung, things are settling into place and we are excited for the opportunities that lie ahead and for our ongoing relationship.

Best wishes,
   Karen, Richard, Janet and Sheila

Year End Statements 

Over the past few weeks, you have undoubtedly opened your investment statements advising you of your account values at the end of 2018.  We understand that these will be met with disappointment and uncertainty .  

As you have heard us say over the years, we are positioned for the long run and we must be careful not to be swayed by the 'noise' and short term fluctuations.  Over time, we will have many more winning years than not and your portfolio should be positioned to withstand the negative periods.  

We do want to let you know that so far this year, the markets have rebounded nicely in all areas, from the 2018 lows.  We have attached a comparison chart for your reference and hope these numbers may help to calm some of the worry and concerns the last statements have given you.

As always, if you have any concerns what-so-ever, please call us to arrange a time to review your portfolio.
