This year has flown past and the festive season is almost once again upon us, so we thought we’d celebrate a little and round off the year with a few of the exciting things that have happened in the last 12 months…
Firstly, we’d like to congratulate Mohsin and Matthew for successfully completing their exams to become fully qualified financial advisers. Although this will not change their current focus within the company, these qualifications are important as they add a depth of knowledge and understanding both to the business and service we offer. It also means that both Mo and Matt are well on their way to achieving their goals and aspirations at Carrington.
Alistair too has had a busy year, he has recently become DipPFS certified and earlier in the year joined forces with Mike as a director of Carrington Investments. Asked regularly to comment on and contribute to industry publications (Portfolio Adviser Eurozone Article and Citywire Emerging Markets Discussion), Alistair’s drive and experience is proving an excellent ally in the vision to improve our services and build the company. The beginning of this year also saw the appointment of Mike Warren as a Non-Executive Director. Mike chairs our quarterly investment committee meetings and his input and advice has proven invaluable over the year.
The summer saw the launch of our Family Service, which we kicked off with a seminar aimed at the younger generation. Expertly presented by Alistair and Carolyn, it was well received and the feedback was fantastic! Our next installment is due early in the new year and will focus on wills and inheritance tax, so please keep tuned for that.
Eric will be putting together an investment summary of the year which will include a reflection on markets and thoughts on our portfolios. This will be going out in early January, so that leaves me with one last undertaking which is to say from all of us here at Carrington we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Prosperous and Happy New Year.
I would also like to personally thank you for your continued support of Carrington throughout 2014 and we look forward to working with you in 2015.
Christmas Closing Times
The office will be closed for Christmas from 17h00 on Tuesday, 23rd December and we will re-open at 09h00 on Monday, 5th January 2015.
Once again, Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for the New Year.
