Financial News Update we 22/07/2011

Hi, so how have you been this week?

As well as the usual reviews, my week has been spent looking at care fees funding for a couple of clients and a few trustee investment cases as well as another client who simply needed reassuring that she still had enough money to live on – to say she is prudent would be an understatement and her assets are well into 6 figures!!

We now face the summer holidays so my wife has been busy planning her diary (and mine!) for the next 6 weeks or so and, despite us feeling that we are not up to much, we don’t seem to be able to arrange to meet up with some friends of ours until the middle of September!… perhaps we should start making our Christmas arrangements now too?!

On the news front, it’s been a quiet week this end with most of the coverage, as I am sure you are aware, geared towards the whole phone hacking saga so if you have seen any other articles I may have missed, do let me know?

Have a good weekend…
