Open for Business… Virtually

Northern Lights Capital and COVID-19 Response

We are all living in a heightened sense of fear and confusion, and our natural reaction to chaotic times to freeze, retreat and hang on for dear life is being exacerbated by the tight restrictions being imposed by our government.

However, the world hasn’t stopped turning, and we will emerge from the COVID-19 cloud at some point. The question is, “How much damage will our inaction have wreaked on our financial lives?”

You don’t have to just put up with things and hide away. You can, and should, act now to protect your future.

Preparedness

Northern Lights Capital is open for business – continuing to serve our existing clients, and ready to take on new clients with no face-to-face, in-person meetings required.

Northern Lights Capital has always been prepared for business interruption. As part of our regulatory compliance, we have to be. We are working remotely, from our homes, trying to slow the spread of COVID-19. We continue to help our clients navigate this psychologically challenging time, and we are actively seeking to expand our services to new clients.

We view things from a different lens than most financial advisors, and we see this market volatility as an opportunity to take advantage of, not as an excuse to hunker down and do nothing, and most certainly not as a time to react emotionally and make bad investing decisions that will irrevocably impact your family’s financial future.

Existing Clients

We continue to be available to you for any of your needs, and if you have any questions or concerns, as always, you can reach us whatever way best suits you.

We’ve already been in touch with many of you during this crisis to discuss your individual situation, and as you know, we started positioning your portfolio in a more defensive position long before the first hints of a problem emerged from China late last year.

New Clients

If you’re not yet a client of Northern Lights Capital, rest assured that we can effect your transfer and opening of accounts without the need for an in-person meeting.

The first step is to reach out and book either a phone call or Zoom video meeting. During this voice or video call, we will discuss your specific situation and how we may be able to help you.

Should you decide that you’d like to move forward with opening an account or transferring your existing accounts from another financial services provider, we can effect all necessary paperwork electronically via DocuSign. You will not have to meet with us in person, nor will you have to meet with or even talk to your current advisor.

If you aren’t comfortable with or able to sign documents electronically, we will hand deliver all necessary documents to your doorstep by our dedicated Northern Lights Capital courier. Once you have the documents, we can walk you through each one via phone or video meeting. When the documents are fully executed, our courier will pick them back up from your doorstep and deliver them to us. We do not use a common courier like Purolator or UPS, but rather a partner who works exclusively with Northern Lights Capital so the confidentiality and security of your documents is always assured.
