Another word that might be fitting is “unexpected”. The results of both the Trump win and Brexit vote were seen by many as highly unusual and unexpected. What both these results did, in fact, shows that people around the world still have a voice and if they feel passionately, and have conviction, they will exercise that voice in a way that reflects their personal views and feelings. Norms and the “expected” have very little to do with it.
Even in South Africa we have not altogether sidestepped the political shake-ups and “unexpected” shifts in the political fabric. On a lighter note, I am not entirely sure whether I should, at present, be using rugby parlance in my attempt to illustrate my point. The underlying factor in all this is simply change – often unexpected change.
As a company we have also experienced some change and the most visible is obviously our new and refreshed branding. This is the most visible step in a number of changes that have taken place to ensure that we are ready for an exciting future and which is aimed at l enhancing client- experience.
Our Logo represents the four focus-areas of our business:
In addition we strive to be “World class” and keep true to our mantra of “Creating Lasting Partnerships”.
I would also like to remind you of our vision:
The Succession vision is to be the leader in holistic financial planning for clients. Succession aims to be the largest professional planner network in South Africa through the creation of lasting partnerships with all stakeholders whilst being sustainably compliant.
We value you and look forward to continue travelling this path with you; sharing the excitement and growing together as we go along.
