The situation with the Covid-19 Coronavirus continues to evolve rapidly. Nations, government leaders and companies across the globe have instituted a variety of policies to help contain the spread of the virus. Global markets are reacting as a consequence and we are seeing heightened volatility and increased intervention by central banks.
As a trusted steward for our clients, BNY Mellon Investment Management has enacted business continuity measures and we continue to accelerate these as the situation evolves. Given the current environment, we have directed all of our non-essential in-office personnel to work remotely or at alternate sites. We are taking such proactive measures as we are focused on the wellbeing of our employees and their communities, and on delivering on our promise to be there for our clients – especially at times like this when you need us most.
Each of our investment firms also has well established business continuity plans in place to ensure portfolio management activities, transactions in their investment products and other responsibilities continue to function without interruption.
BNY Mellon Investment Management is fully functional and we remain at your service to continue to maintain the high-quality service, stability and flexibility you have come to expect of us. Our people are working incredibly hard to deliver on our promise to be a trusted investment partner and stand ready to demonstrate the full strength of our company – now and in the future.
Please don’t hesitate to contact your BNY Mellon Investment Management representative if you have any additional questions or would like to receive an update on our activities and preparedness at this time.
Thank you for your confidence and, most importantly, stay safe and be well.
