Steve Willems April 14, 2020 Markets

Weekly Update: April 14, 2020

Easter has come and gone, and this year certainly looked a little different for the Willems family, as I’m sure was the case for your family too.  Regardless, we spent some physically distanced time together, appreciated the meaning of the holiday, and took advantage of the sunshine to cross some “Spring Cleaning” tasks off the to-do list.

As you may wish, stay connected this week in any of the following methods.

1) State of the Markets Web Calls

Join us for a brief 30 minute Zoom Web Conference Call where we will share recent insights we’re hearing from portfolio management teams, and/or stories from the past that we’ve been reflecting on that seem particularly relevant today.  The sessions will be led by Brad Willems and Steve Willems and will provide a platform to take your questions and engage in dialogue as a group.

Thursday, April 16 at 1:00pm – REGISTER NOW

2) Wealth Matters Conference Calls

These calls piggyback on our broader Assante network across Canada and will bring in CI Investments’ top portfolio managers for direct access to client questions.  A summary of the call can always be made available if you are unable to join the live call.  This week, our session will feature Marchello Holditch, Vice-President and Portfolio Manager at CI Multi-Asset Management.

3) Book a Virtual Review

Our Assante Abbotsford Branch has officially closed as of Thursday, March 19, 2020. As such, there will be no face to face meetings. However, virtual meetings can be booked at your convenience directly with Brad or Steve through the following links:
