Helping you manage COVID-19 risks and recovery

As the impacts of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) are increasingly felt across Australia and New Zealand, it is important that we are all ready for the impacts to our personal and professional lives. At this stage the full and long-term impacts are unknown, so it is important that we are preparing ourselves for business continuity and keep up to date with what is happening at a global and local level.

We are strongly encouraging our clients to think about their own business continuity preparedness and urge them to seek support from their adviser and extended team.

Should you have any questions, we encourage you to contact us and your local adviser will be in touch to discuss your circumstances further.
