We just wanted to update you on what we are doing here at Blackdown Financial, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is a continually evolving and unprecedented situation that we find ourselves in and as a business it is our priority to ensure the health and the wellbeing of our team and their families, as well as our clients.
As a business we have made to decision to cancel all physical face to face client meetings until further notice, but we will continue to offer all clients the opportunity to meet up either remotely via video calls or telephone call.
It does seem that the period where people are infectious – but not displaying symptoms is quite lengthy and we do not want increase the risk of infection for anyone, particularly with our older and more vulnerable clients.
Furthermore based on advice, we have taken the decision to give our staff the option to work remotely with immediate effect. From a technical perspective we are extremely fortunate to have invested in the tools and infrastructure to support seamless remote working and have put into place measures that will ensure we continue to offer our clients a full financial and mortgage service.
Our office will remain open for the interim and will continue to do so unless otherwise so advised by the government.
Covid-19 will impact all businesses in some form in the coming months and we therefore wanted to reassure you that we remain open for business and are here to help should you require any assistance during this time.
As the situation unfolds we will better understand the economic and market response to what is happening right now and it’s good to see the immediate intervention of the Bank of England, the UK Government and central banks, step in – as fast as they have to stabilise the world economy.
