A Message From Tom and Kevin Curran

“When facing a Life-changing crisis, don’t expect your situation to turn around instantaneously. It won’t. So, prepare for the long haul. Nourish yourself. Meditate. Pray. Eat your meals on time and please eat healthy stuff. Exercise. Go for long walks. Goof off once in a while. Your being morose, or your worrying stiff, is not going to solve your problems. The situation will resolve only when the time arrives. Until that happens, you have to last, you have to survive. So, take care of yourself. Every moment. Every day.” 

― AVIS Viswanathan

To all our friends and clients,

In spite of the challenges we are facing with regard to Covid 19 our goal remains the same: It is to provide the best financial services for all of you.

While we have been busier than normal dealing with issues involving the markets, we have also been addressing requirements to have our staff work from home.  

We are in compliance with Governor Cuomo’s executive order to limit our in office staff to 25% of total Curran employees. Thursday we complied with the 50% order.

As I am writing this, New York is moving to allow 0% of its office workers to come to work in non-essential businesses. Under the Governor’s guidelines, financial services including investment firms, are considered non-essential. We are prepared to comply.

Our staff will be working from home using Curran business equipment to include laptops. They are secure and subject to the same stringent cyber security requirements we use in our corporate headquarters in Albany, NY. Our business phones are portable and can be plugged into any internet service.   So when you call us it is exactly the same as calling our offices.  

We have prepared and tested our systems for this. Sadly, we must now actually execute what we have planned in a time like this.

I am confident Curran Wealth Management, Curran Investment Management and Hippo Tax Services are prepared to service you. 

You may have heard me say in the past: “Know what to do before it happens.”

Operationally we are prepared. As a result we can provide ongoing service to our clients while protecting the health and well-being of our valued staff.

Our investment strategies have been tested. We have guided our clients through the collapse of technology stocks in 2000, 9/11, the Financial Crisis of 2008 and now through Covid 19.

We have always stressed the importance for owning high quality companies. When emotions return to more normal levels, I am confident our focus on highest quality companies with strong balance sheets will prove to be both comforting and rewarding.

So call us just like you have in the past. In the next few days we will provide additional investment information but for now it is important to stay the course.
