This infographic provides a lot of data about COVID-19 in an easy-to-understand visual format. This inforgraphic link can be emailed to clients.
One KEY piece of "good news" is that based on data collected so far the virus appears to be lethal only to unique subset of people (people 65+ living with one or more serious health conditions) whereas the vast majority of people experience only MILD or even non-existent symptoms.
This website site was developed as a free resource to support organizations working through the challenges of the COVID-19 outbreak, and was made possible by the cooperations of a number of different teams.
We are sharing this online resource to ensure that ALL AdvisorNet clients have the best resources possible for dealing with the business disruptions caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
Business Messaging Apps
As various provincial governments mandate the closure of all "non-essential" businesses, Financial Advisors are looking for ways to stay connected with their team members while everyone is being forced to work at home.
There are several excellent business messaging apps available today and each one has different pros and cons. At AdvisorNet we have been using the SLACK program from several years for staying in touch with various team members who are scattered all around the globe. Slack is available for FREE for their basic package which is probably suffient for most financial planning offices.
In direct competition to SLACK, Microsoft recently introduced a new FREE business messaging program called "TEAMS". This messaging program is targeted toward companies that make extensive use of other Microsoft programs.
