The global impact of the coronavirus has created challenges and unpredictability across the financial services industry. Our priority is to protect the safety and well-being of our employees and their families while ensuring business continuity for our clients who depend on us during this unprecedented time.
In recent weeks, Foreside has closely monitored developments related to COVID-19 and we have implemented a series of policies, including remote working, to protect our teams and mitigate risk to our operations. As we have seen over the past month, our firm is steadfast, and we are proud to have robust business continuity standards embedded into our operations to efficiently and effectively deliver client services remotely.
The vast majority of Foreside’s workforce has been working remotely for over a week. It is worth noting that Foreside has not experienced any issues since moving to remote working conditions, including with remote access connectivity or system latency.
In recent days, various states and cities have taken steps to slow the spread of COVID-19 by ordering all non-essential businesses to close their physical operations. Foreside is following all recommendations and has closed our office locations that have been affected by these mandates.
We recognize that this is a challenging time for all. Please be assured that as this situation continues to evolve, we are standing by to support you as we always have and are committed to continuing to deliver the quality service for which you are accustomed. As always, your Foreside team is available to answer any questions you may have. We wish you and your families well during this time.
