Rocq Capital is pleased to report that its two new colleagues have settled in really well. Kim Hunt and Dan Moore recently bolstered our team as Rocq Capital continues to grow and flourish. We celebrated our 5th birthday earlier this year and we continue to provide a high level of performance and service to our ever growing band of followers that include private clients, trusts, pensions (RATS) and captive insurers. 

Kim joined Rocq Capital as Accounts Manager and Company Secretary in March this year. 

“Coming from a Trust background, I was a little apprehensive about switching to an investment house but I am happy to say that it has proven to be both an interesting and rewarding experience. Rocq make me feel that my “back office” contribution to the business is highly valued and it is a great privilege to work on a daily basis with a team of engaged professionals who are so obviously interested in their chosen field.”                                                

Dan has joined as a trainee Investment Manager following his graduation from Brighton Business School. He aims to complete his Investment Advice Diploma through the Chartered Institute for Securities and Investment. He has commented on his start;

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the introduction to my career in investments at Rocq Capital. The team have been extremely welcoming and have ensured my start has been both educational and stimulating. It has been a pleasure to work alongside individuals with such extensive industry experience and I have found this has contributed to an elevated understanding of different components that make up the various markets. I look forward to continuing my work with the team and expanding my abilities within the job role.” 

 

Congratulations to the Guernsey Padel Team who celebrated a 36-15 victory against Jersey in the inaugural Corcuera Cup Inter-Insular.

The weekend involved 51 games through which both Islands battled for points at the Guernsey Tennis Centre.

An exceptional blend of showmanship, talent and commitment towards this growing sport resulted in a truly successful weekend that both islands can be proud of.

Rocq Capital looks forward to continuing its support for the Corcuera Cup and wishes both teams the best of luck for next year’s competition in Jersey.

It was an eventful summer in the markets with some significant global developments and moves within asset
classes, particularly in September.

This has been the quietest quarter of the year so far in markets, having neither the precipitous drops of Q1 nor the spectacular rallies of Q2. Nonetheless, there have been significant moves in a variety of asset classes and the high dispersion of returns between sectors and regions has continued.

2020 is a year in which it seems time has sped up, weeks feel like months and months feel like years. It was merely three months ago when investment markets were pricing in a significant global recession. However the reopening of economies as the perceived threat of coronavirus fell away somewhat, swift and dramatic policy response from governments and central banks, led to a sharp about turn in markets.

It was a tumultuous quarter for financial markets, reflecting the upheaval experienced by society as a whole due to the coronavirus pandemic. With many businesses closed or operating well below capacity, and demand severely curtailed by the current circumstances, stocks and corporate bonds experienced heavy sell-offs.

In an attempt to mitigate the impact of the coronavirus outbreak the States of Guernsey has ordered the island into lockdown mode from 25th March for an initial period of fourteen days. We applaud the authorities for this action designed to keep islanders, our colleagues, clients and contacts safe.

Rocq Capital activated its well-rehearsed business continuity plan last week with the team working remotely. This enables us to operate as normal without delay or any reduction in service standards. The office is now closed until further notice and all  telephone calls are being diverted to our Office Manager who will point you in the right direction. Email traffic is uninterrupted and will be responded to as normal. If you have a general enquiry please use info@rocqcapital.com.

We look forward to seeing you again, in person, once the virus has cleared and the authorities deem it safe to do so. We will update this webpage in order to keep you posted.

Keep safe.

Rocq Capital
