Covid-19 updates

2020

We are currently implementing a number of measures to deal with the coronavirus outbreak.

We are closely monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation and will be reviewing the Government’s response and potential implications on a daily basis.

As such, we encourage you to visit our website regularly for the latest response to market developments, delivery of our service and status of our upcoming events.

Over the last few years we have put a significant amount of work into our IT infrastructure and virtually everything we do is now cloud based. Fortunately this means we can continue to deliver the key elements of our service should the office need to close. Clients can access their information and client-specific communications via the client portal.

We will continue to monitor the response and guidance issued by the Government. Further information on the Government’s action plan can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-action-plan/coronavirus-action-plan-a-guide-to-what-you-can-expect-across-the-uk
