As I write the introduction to this quarter’s newsletter, we seem to be edging closer to the end of the lockdown in the UK, with full lifting of restrictions in the UK on July 19th.
Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for a number of countries and I fear that this will hamper not only individual families and their holiday plans but will act as a drag on economic recovery.
Our UK staff are slowly beginning to return to the office as are staff at all our overseas locations, but with caution and safety our primary considerations. However, I hope that we will resume full opening at the end of July.
Since our last newsletter, we have finalised the permanent appointment of Colin Nicol as Pensions and Business Development Director for the UK arm of our international employee benefits business, following the successful completion of his 6-month consultancy. His vast wealth of experience will enhance our range and level of service and we welcome him to the group.
In the USA we have received our approval from the SEC.
I hope you all continue to stay safe and well.
