Prior to President Ramaphosa’s address and national lockdown announcement on the 23rd of March 2020, Taquanta implemented various business continuity plans aimed at ensuring that we remain fully operational in this time of crisis.
In line with the President’s announcement, both Taquanta Asset Managers and Taquanta Securities were classified and subsequently registered as enabling services. All the necessary operational steps to facilitate a remote working enviroment were put in place and since the unprecedented lock-down announcement, the significant majority of our team are now functioning remotely, with a small number of key individuals working from the office.
In these difficult times, we will continue to strive to deliver the same excellent service levels that our clients have grown accustomed to receiving, with the exception of face-to-face meetings.
Capital preservation has always been the cornerstone of our investment philosophy. This cautious and measured approach, we hope, will ensure that our client’s funds are protected during these unpredictable and volatile prevailing market conditions, whilst still providing very competitive yields.
Please feel free to contact any staff member if you have any concerns or questions.
Wishing you and your organisation all the best through this most challenging time.
Group Chief Executive Officer
