Our first priority in response to COVID-19 has been, and continues to be, the safety and wellbeing of our colleagues, the teams working in our portfolio companies and other partners.
We want to keep you informed of the steps EOS Investment Management Group (“EOS IM Group”) has taken that are designed to ensure the smooth and professional delivery of services to all our investors, partners and the continued receipt of support from our third party service providers around the world.
Following the measures taken by the Governments across Europe to reduce the spread of COVID-19, EOS IM Group’s professionals are working from home until further notice. We have been preparing for this scenario for some time and have the infrastructure in place to allow our people to work remotely.
EOS IM Group being a multi-jurisdictional company, has implemented the guidance from the World Health Organization (“WHO”), enhancing our Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”) with these specific steps to account for COVID-19.
Although all companies have been required to adapt their operating models, you can rest assured that EOS IM Group continues to operate effectively. The performance of our duties will suffer minimal impact in terms of the management of funds. ESG is core to our culture and as such we place the health and safety of our staff, the funds underlying portfolio companies’ staff, those we work with and other individuals as being paramount. We have taken a number of steps to minimise the risks, through the implementation of the BCP programme
In the global interconnected financial sector, we also know that our professional service providers are currently operating under their own robust BCP programmes as well. Our goal remains to provide uninterrupted services throughout this period. However, it is of course not possible to guarantee that minor interruptions and issues will be not encountered over this period. We would like to thank you for your ongoing trust in us and patience if some things take a little longer than normal. We are confident that we can continue to run our business with minimal impact on our funds’ investors, clients and portfolio companies, while at the same time protecting the health of our professionals, their families and the broader communities in which we operate.
