COVID-19: Business as usual for AdviserPlus
The spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus continues to dominate the news, with potential major implications for public health. As you would expect, in line with good corporate governance we are monitoring developments very closely and have also put in place sensible measures to ensure that we are well prepared and can continue business as usual.
We wanted to reassure you that in respect of the spread of the COVID-19 outbreak our major focus is the health and welfare of our people together with our ability to continue to effectively support our clients in all scenarios. I am therefore writing to share with you some of the actions that we have taken.
Preparation for COVID-19
We have a comprehensive Business Continuity Plan in place. This is integral to our business and we are confident in our robust approach to both effective business and risk management.
We have carried out a detailed and specific risk assessment across our business in relation to the potential consequences of COVID-19. We have identified the key requirements to enable us to function under a range of foreseeable scenarios and our plan is being kept under constant review. These scenarios include a major sickness outbreak, such as the current pandemic we are experiencing.
Keeping our people and clients safe while continuing business as usual
From a safety point of view, we’re now fully home deployed and working remotely, working together through digital channels. We have everything in place for that to happen and to enable us to continue business as usual. We are communicating with our colleagues daily and everyone is working hard to support each other during these unusual circumstances.
We have invested in our technological infrastructure to ensure that our business can adapt and operate under the current circumstances.
As the situation is very fluid, we will continue to monitor and review the situation.
