Covid-19 - Our preventive measures

24th March 2020

We hereby wish to provide an update of the Edmond de Rothschild Group’s response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Our Group’s priority is to ensure the protection of the health of our employees, clients and business partners, whilst assuring full operational capabilities.

We are ensuring constant close monitoring of the COVID-19 public health emergency through a global governance framework and the alignment of local teams.

The precautionary measures we have proactively implemented throughout our Group include a global travel ban, the hosting of meetings via video or tele-conference, preventive quarantine for employees considered to be potentially at risk, home working and a ring-fencing of teams across different office locations, while ensuring compliance with national measures in local jurisdictions.

Moreover, we have enhanced our business continuity plans so as to ensure the consistency of our service delivery quality standards. These plans have made it possible to extend teleworking capacities to a large number of employees. They also enforce strict social distancing measures for employees who have to work from the office, in order to limit the potential risk of infection spreading. Data security for home working is ensured through secured remote access in accordance with the highest market standards.

We are confident in our teams’ resilience and professionalism and we are fully committed to supporting you during these challenging times.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your dedicated Relationship Manager.

We will keep you informed of developments and measures as we implement them.
