Business resilience measures for COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

24 March 2020

Aberdeen Standard Capital’s response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

At Aberdeen Standard Capital (ASC) and across our wider parent group (Standard Life Aberdeen), our first priority as we respond to COVID-19 is the safety and wellbeing of our clients and colleagues.

We are actively reviewing and abiding by government and World Health Organisation (WHO) advice, as it is issued, to ensure our colleagues are looked after and we can continue to service our client community.

In line with business continuity strategies that we have implemented across various countries within our Group, we are now implementing these in the UK to help prevent the spread of the virus. Therefore, our Aberdeen Standard teams across our UK and Jersey offices are now working from home.

Our teams already have significant experience of working across split locations, including working from home, and we are hopeful that you will not experience any disruption to our services. Nevertheless, we are in an unusual situation and would like to thank you for your understanding and support. All of these measures are taken with the aim of protecting everyone’s wellbeing, while continuing to deliver the highest level of service to our clients and customers.

During this unprecedented time, we want to reassure you that we will continue to be available when you need us. While we may not be able to meet face-to-face, we will engage actively with you by video-conference, telephone or digitally and will endeavour to minimise disruption wherever possible.

The Group’s, and Aberdeen Standard Capital’s, current actions and protocols remain under constant review and we will continue to respond accordingly to ongoing events.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact your usual ASC representative.
