As we move into the next phase of managing the impact of the coronavirus, I would like to update you on our contingency planning and the measures which we have taken to safeguard the health and safety of our staff members and to allow us to continue serving our clients.
Robeco has created a dedicated crisis management team which continuously monitors the latest developments. In line with our strategy and planning, we have implemented a broad range of measures to date.
Our crisis management team is working with our experienced operations team, under the leadership of Robeco’s executive committee, to vigilantly monitor developments.
We are well positioned to deal with the situation and are in a state of business readiness to respond as appropriate. Should it become necessary, we will adjust our policy measures to accommodate new developments.
Robeco’s operations are designed so that we can run our business with full functionality from remote locations for an extended period, should this be necessary. Our systems and platforms can be accessed by our staff from off-site locations, enabling the seamless continuity of our investment and business operations.
We understand that these are unsettling circumstances, made more so by the volatility in financial markets. Be assured of our duty of care to you, and of our commitment to the safe stewardship of your assets.
As is our normal practice, we will keep you informed about our macro views, investment strategies and your portfolios. Given the turbulent nature of market movements, we are increasing our efforts to keep clients updated, using all of our communication channels.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to discuss these with us through your Robeco contact.
