Thank you for being a valued client of First Community Trust (FCT).
Over the past several weeks, our team has been closely monitoring the situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). As cases have spread across the country, there has been significant impact in all areas of our lives. Our top priority remains the safety and wellbeing of our clients and employees.
To that end, we would like to make you aware that we have implemented the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and our government leaders in respect to COVID-19. Our on-site staff will be limited over the next several weeks and many of our employees will be working remotely. Please be assured, we are still available to serve your needs.
If you have a scheduled appointment, we understand that you may not want to visit us in our office. Our staff is available to you by phone or email, if you have matters to discuss. Your business is critically important to us and we pledge our ongoing efforts in serving you during this challenging and unprecedented time.
In addition to the health concerns caused by COVID-19, there has also been a shock to the global economy. Fortunately, the U.S. economy was in good and improving shape prior to the crisis and significant measures are being put in place by congress and the Federal Reserve to help reduce the overall impact and stimulate the eventual recovery.
At some point, and there is no way to know how soon, the news related to the spread of the virus will begin to improve and there will be a substantial recovery in the financial markets. It is important to remain invested in the appropriate mix for your situation, so your accounts benefit from the recovery.
Please contact us if you have any questions about this situation and our response. Thank you for your continued trust in our team.
