Goodbye 2021 and Happy New Year!

Thank you for taking the time out to read our blogs this year.  Our focus since the pandemic started is to keep everyone abreast of market news as we have been through this roller coaster ride for economies and markets.

We have used a variety of market commentary and input from economists, fund managers and stockbrokers from a wide range of businesses.  I think it’s important for you to read a variety of views to understand the consensus view.

In addition, we pop in the occasional planning article on topical issues or things that we think we need to bring to your attention.  Hopefully these are useful too?

Given the last c 22 months that we have experienced we are changing the way we think as a business here too and once again we have not mailed out Christmas cards but decided to make charitable donations and sponsor good causes throughout the year.

We have supported the following this year:

Reach Family Project (Bolton)

Queenscourt Hospice (Southport)

Macmillan Cancer Support

Armed Forces Charity

Alzheimer’s Society

The Candice Colley Foundation (aims to help leukemia and other blood cancer patients and their families)

The Bloom Appeal (Merseyside against blood cancers – provides support to patients and medical staff)

We aim to continue this into 2022.

With regards to the business, we are managing in the current environment, but I really do look forward to when we can all work in the office together again.  Personally, I think this is the best option for the mental health and wellbeing of us all and for the development of our staff.  We also benefit from the teamwork, the banter and the social aspects of work being back in the office.

We wish you all a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year!  Hopefully 2022 will be much better for all of us.  Take care of yourselves.


Steve Speed and all the team at P and B.
