Financial Update – April 2020

Welcome to our monthly newsletter.

The severity of the Coronavirus epidemic cannot be disguised: it has gripped the news, caused upheaval to our lifestyles, and changed behaviors. But it’s important to step back every so often, for the sake of our own mental health, and think about something different. 

For this month’s fun fact: April is named after the Greek goddess of love Aphrodite. The Romans spelled it ‘Aprilis’ meaning ‘to open’, which fits very well since it’s the month when our trees and flowers begin to bloom.

Financial news has been dominated by one event, which has hit the markets hard and forced the Chancellor to release hundreds of billions of pounds into the economy to support the country through the months ahead.
