As we all respond to the changes in our environment caused by the COVID-19 outbreak, we are keen to reassure our clients that our priority is to continue to provide the market leading services to which you’ve become accustomed, while protecting the health and safety of our people and their families across the globe.

We have taken, and continue to take, a number of precautionary measures to minimise the risk to our clients, colleagues and others. These measures are informed by the most current guidance from leading health authorities and experts, which we are monitoring closely.

Colleagues in the UK and France across Blackrock Expert Services, Haberman Ilett, IT Group and Martello Financial Services have now been asked to work from home. We are confident that we are equipped to do so following successful tests of this capability. As such we are able to continue to work on our engagements whilst maintaining the integrity of our processes and security of our clients’ data.

Email and telephone contact details for our staff will remain the same, and you can still contact us on our main office lines as detailed on our contact us page.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your ongoing support and understanding and to thank my colleagues who have been cheerful, positive and understanding and continue to service our clients with their usual dedication.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or anyone else across the Blackrock Expert Services Group.

I wish you all the very best in these most unusual and testing times.

Giles Derry

CEO, Blackrock Expert Services Group
