An update from Dan Daviau, President & CEO of Canaccord Genuity Group Inc. about how we are managing through COVID-19
The growing concerns around COVID-19 present new challenges in all of our lives, both personally and professionally. As developments are moving quickly, I want to take an opportunity to let you know that we’re committed to providing you with seamless support during this trying time.
We know that this prolonged period of uncertainty and volatility requires everyone in our organization to be nimble and adaptable.
Like other organizations, we are following the recommendations of public health authorities and are limiting travel and in-person meetings, but across our global Wealth Management and Capital Markets businesses, the entire team of CG professionals and support staff remain committed to meeting your needs. Although we have asked most of our staff to work remotely, several of our offices will have limited on-site staff.
Importantly, I want to personally assure you that Canaccord Genuity’s firmwide business continuity plan is designed to ensure that we can continue to provide uninterrupted service for our clients.
In recent years, we have made significant investments to advance the infrastructure, technology and trading platforms across our organization and we regularly stress-test our protocols, capacity and capabilities. All of our business units are equipped to operate remotely and collaborate seamlessly in a secure environment.
We also have a strong balance sheet and the strength to support our clients in the current market environment, and through the market turmoil.
All markets present challenges and opportunities, and we recognize that it is our responsibility to help you navigate the challenges and find the right opportunities.
Our diversified global platform has proven its strength in prior cycles and our independence affords us a level of agility that allows us to meet the evolving needs of our clients in any market. More than ever, we remain focused on providing you with innovative products, advice and solutions as we navigate this challenge together.
And finally, on behalf of all my colleagues in the Canaccord Genuity Group, our greatest wish is that that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy.
