First and foremost, Leede Jones Gable Inc. is open for business. We are an essential service and will continue to provide investment advice, portfolio management and client support during this crisis.
That said, we follow the directives of our health authorities and have taken steps to protect the health of our employees, our clients and our communities.
We now work remotely as much as possible. Over the years we have developed advanced capabilities for working outside the office. We also have resilient redundancy and backup systems. All our functions are intact and available on demand during normal business hours.
As always, you may contact your advisor or portfolio manager by phone for trading instructions, or by phone and email for personal service and assistance. You may also view your account information online.
We are respecting the request of health authorities for social distance and have closed our offices to non-employees. Instead of in-person visits, please make alternative arrangements with your advisor or portfolio manager for the time being.
We are financially very strong and able to weather this storm. We have seen down markets many times in our long history. Over the decades we have watched every disturbance prove temporary and give way to a healthy recovery. This one is no different.
In these difficult times, we thank all of the people who work selflessly to take care of the vulnerable within our communities and keep our essential services running. For those who need a helping hand, we have made donations to local food banks. Take care of yourself and each other.
