Over the past few days, our clients have watched the financial markets react very strongly to the deepening national concerns regarding COVID-19. These health concerns are at the forefront of your thoughts rather than the status of your investment account.
We understand that your health and safety are your top priority. Accordingly, we at Boenning & Scattergood are doing everything we can to ensure the health and safety of our clients, visitors, and our staff. We have in place, should we need to implement this action, our remote location business continuity plan (our “BCP”), and we will be able to continue to provide all of the necessary services to you and your account, without interruption.
We are closely following the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) guidelines and recommendations on the steps we can take to help prevent the spread of the virus. And, we have been discussing the necessary details associated with implementing our BCP should the need arise.
Should we not be able to conduct business from our normal locations, we are confident that should you want information regarding your account, want to place a trade, or would like to speak to your adviser, our BCP is in place so you can do so. We expect to continue to be reachable via telephone and email just as we are today. Should you need to reach us now, in a few days, or sometime in the future, we look forward to speaking with you!
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as needed.
Thank you for your trust in Boenning & Scattergood, Inc.
Harold F. Scattergood, Jr.
Chairman and CEO
