Welcome to Creekside Capital
A Financial Wellness Company
July 13, 2021
Please accept our heartfelt gratitude for your flexibility over the last 16 months. With more and more people being vaccinated against the virus, we are happy to welcome our clients and all other walk-ins to our office here at Creekside Capital. If you prefer, we are still happy to meet via teleconference or videoconference, and continue to offer our clients the option of remaining in their own car while they deposit checks, pick up/drop off/sign documents. We also continue to disinfect all surfaces between clients. We ask that you notify us and reschedule any appointments if you are experiencing any flu-like symptoms, shortness of breath, cough, traveled outside the Knoxville area over the last two weeks, or have been exposed to a person suspected of having the COVID-19 virus.
Please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns you would like to discuss. Thank you for the trust you have placed in us to help you navigate this unprecedented time.
