Business Continuity Efforts in Response to the Coronavirus
While serving our clients remains our top priority, on March 16, we suspended face-to-face client activity for the foreseeable future, and will instead focus on serving our clients through the use of telephonic and digital communication.
Our investment affiliates have also activated their business continuity plans and expect no interruption in their ability to manage investment portfolios.
Our leadership, affiliates and client service teams around the world remain committed to supporting our clients through this time and will remain proactive and available.
We have activated our business continuity plan, which allows for employees to work remotely in a seamless fashion and clients should expect to experience the same high level of client service that they have come to count on from Legg Mason.
Our responses to this challenging environment are focused on the safety of our employees, support for our clients and are based on established continuity and pandemic plans and guidance from global health organizations, in alignment with various government restrictions.
We continue to monitor the situation closely and will provide regular updates as needed.
