Changing Perspectives

July 23, 2020

Who would have thought that things could change so abruptly for every human being on the earth! To say that this pandemic is unprecedented is somewhat of an understatement!

The media keeps talking about the ‘new normal’ and we all wonder what that means…really. Will it be different for everyone? What about our investments and retirement plans? Will we need to adjust the variable estimates for return and inflation in our plan? Of course, as with any other time, there is no way for anyone…skilled and professional as they might be…to forecast or accurately project these things.

When the pandemic began, many economists suggested that it would be a ‘V’ shaped recession and it certainly started out that way on the down side. However, the ‘V’ is not looking symmetrical from this side! They also said at the time that the downturn in the market was not due to fundamentals as company balance sheets were generally solid. The downside was caused mostly by fear! 

Grateful for Front Line Warriors

We have filled our window with Christmas lights to thank all of the dedicated essential service workers who are putting themselves at risk to help those in need. Wishing you safety and strength through this difficult time.

Our thoughts and endless thanks are with you.

An Important Note from Brian J. Evans Financial Services

March 24, 2020

To our valued clients,

In light of recent announcements by the provincial government we want to assure you that as an essential service in Ontario we are continuing to serve your financial needs. We are also closely following recommendations from Public Health Canada regarding COVID-19. During this time we are putting in place new precautions to ensure the safety of both our clients and staff. These precautions include minimizing any potential spread of virus through specific disinfection and distancing protocol including the following.


We are establishing controlled access to the office.

  • Our office door will be locked. We ask that you contact the office first to discuss your financial needs. Many services we provide for you can be managed by phone or email.
  • If you need to drop something off or to sign papers, please call ahead so we can set up an appropriate time. To ensure proper physical distancing this will prevent multiple clients arriving at the same time. During this exchange we will keep interactions to a minimum and according to physical distancing recommendations.
  • Face to face appointments will be arranged only as specifically necessary. Clients will be asked the prescribed set of pre-screening questions regarding COVID-19. If clients have ANY cold or flu symptoms, we will pursue alternate arrangements to serve you remotely.

As before, our office will contact clients as investments require servicing. You can still reach us during regular office hours at 905-852-3184. Emails can be sent to info@investsmart.ca.

These are very different and unprecedented times. We all need an increased level of patience and understanding as we comply to directives and ensure the safety of all.

Thank-you for your care and assistance. We appreciate you all.
