Covid-19: Martin Aitken business operations update

Due to the escalation of the Coronavirus Covid-19 outbreak and the measures that have been announced by the Scottish and UK Governments, we wanted to make you aware of a few changes we are making to our business operations.19796 MACO FINANCIAL ACUITY NEWSLETTER WEB FILES 15

We want to reassure you that our priorities over the next few months will be the health and well-being of our staff, clients and business partners; continuing to support and provide an uninterrupted service to you, our clients; and ensuring that everyone at the Martin Aitken Group continues to adhere to the advice and direction of the public health experts in Scotland and acts and behaves accordingly.

Although our offices in Glasgow and Johnstone will be closed, we will continue to operate and support our clients during this unprecedented period. >Support for Scottish businesses announced by the UK and Scottish Governments

From today, all of our staff will be working from home where possible. Our staff can remotely access systems, electronic records and our client portal within a secure IT environment. We are also able to redirect calls to staff mobiles and home land lines.

If you have a meeting scheduled with one of the Martin Aitken team they will be in touch with you shortly to make alternative arrangements. We intend to conduct meetings by telephone, videoconferencing or Skype during the crisis.

Along with all of you, we are deeply concerned about the health, social and economic impacts that the Coronavirus outbreak has already caused and likely to cause over the coming months.

All we can do is prepare ourselves accordingly, act in a socially responsible manner and have confidence in the people, systems and approaches we are taking to deal with the challenges we will face and trust that our business continuity procedures will see us safely through the crisis.

Obviously if the guidance from public health experts changes then we will change our operations to ensure we comply with the requirements and we will update you accordingly.

In the meantime, we hope this update has provided you with some reassurance and we would encourage you all to look out for those in your families and neighbourhoods who are going to need our care and support over the coming months.
