Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Those reassuring words remind us that this global health crisis will run its course and families will return to their “normal” lives with a new perspective regarding the future. Hopefully it will happen soon. Even the longest red light eventually turns green.
Realistically, we’re not there yet. The pandemic has disrupted our daily routines, social interactions, work life, and the global economy. Worry and anxiety are pervasive in every community — too many unknowns. That’s exactly why knowledge is the antidote to anxiety. As Health Director for Transamerica Advanced Markets, I wanted to reach out and invite you to discover what Transamerica is doing right now to provide the most accurate information regarding COVID-19: solid facts and recommendations financial professionals can share with family, work associates, and clients.
It starts with this COVID-19 Update webpage. There are several important assets already posted here for you to download, and many more are coming:

“Market Performance: Through Sickness and in Health”
These powerfully informative one-page tools help professionals guide the financial conversation with clients and prospects. Tracking since 1980, these tools visually depict how equities and fixed income markets have always rebounded after every global health crisis.
Here’s a great question: How will your clients remember the pandemic? Will they remember how you reached out to offer reassurance and a pathway to a more secure future? There has never been a better time to embrace Transamerica’s Wealth+HealthSM approach to preparing for retirement: Help your clients make smart choices today and live better tomorrow.
I plan to continue posting blog entries for the foreseeable future to keep you informed, and I encourage you to utilize these additional W+H resources.
