Unfortunately the Investment & Retirement Solutions Ltd ‘great unlocking’ has had some unintended consequences as 30% of our independent financial advisers and 50% of our primary administration team have become obliged to self-isolate following NHS COVID 19 app “ping” notifications.
As of Monday 26th July, our Head Office at Ransom Hall will not be attended until the end of the week.
None of our ‘pinged’ team are symptomatic and all are working from home.
We apologise for meetings which have had to be postponed at short notice.
The ‘pingdemic’ is having a significant impact on our ability to obtain information from financial product providers and investment solution providers and we’re witnessing growing delays in information flows, which in turn is having a detrimental impact on our timescales.
We find the current situation very frustrating and apologise for any inconvenience, however, we will not disregard the ‘pings’.
