Triangle’s Action Plan for COVID-19
All staff members at Triangle are fully vaccinated, and are working full time in the office Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. We are continually keeping up with the CDC guidelines, and are making sure to sanitize and clean all commonly touched surfaces, as well as wearing a mask when we are in close contact with each other for more than 15 minutes at a time. We are mainly offering virtual meetings, but are offering limited in person meetings to help keep up with safe social distancing recommendations.
We ask that you stay home if you are ill or symptomatic as we are more than happy to have your meeting over zoom or the phone, or to reschedule your meeting until you are well.
Triangle’s Plan of Action:
- All appointments with Kendra and Lindsey are now virtual preferred. We have limited availability to meet in person.
- Our staff members are completely vaccinated, keeping their hands washed consistently, wearing masks, and are continuously doing their part to keep their workstations and the office clean.
- Office hours are now 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, please schedule an appointment time to drop something off in office.
As always, please look for emails, follow us on Facebook and check our website to stay posted on what we are doing. We wish you wellness, and we are here for you.

InvenTrust Reverse Stock Split
InvenTrust Properties, formerly known as Inland America, announced a 1-for-10 Reverse Stock Split on August 5th, 2021, in preparation for a possible liquidity event. You will receive a confirmation and see this reverse split reflected on your statement. This reverse split will not change the total value of your investment in InvenTrust, but you will see a decrease in number of shares.
Along with the reverse stock split, the company has cancelled the Share Repurchase program for this fall, which we had previously emailed information out to clients who held the share. You can disregard that previous communication.
At this time, there is no further action needed by you. We will be monitoring this investment and evaluating any possible liquidity events when they are available.
Phases and Stages: COVID’s Impact on Market’s Phases
At Triangle, we feel like a broken record talking about diversification in your portfolio and how we would suggest to rebalance. This article by Liz Ann Sonders, Charles Schwab’s Chief Investment Strategist, talks about how different markets have responded to the phases and stages of Covid. https://www.schwab.com/resource-center/insights/content/phases-and-stages-covids-impact-on-markets-phases
Triangle Financial was recently informed of the recent sale of 3101 Ingersoll Ave, which means that Triangle will be moving to a new location at the beginning of 2022. We are still working on getting final details in place, but will keep our clients updated about any and all changes through email, mailings, as well as on our website and postings to Facebook.
