As Financial Markets classified as an essential service under the Governments guidance for Level 4 – we remain open for business (8:30am - 5:00pm, Mon-Fri) and will continue to provide you with investment services by telephone or email. The only change is that our branches across the country will now be closed to client visits. So please phone or email your Investment Adviser with any questions or requests as normal.
We operate with only critical staff at Head Office, while all remaining Craigs employees will work from home as the health and wellbeing of our clients and staff is our priority.
Many of Craigs employees have been working securely from home over the past week or so, and we are well positioned to service clients. Please feel assured that we are focused on providing investment services to you through this time.
We appreciate many clients will have questions regarding the markets and their investment portfolios. We encourage you to contact your Investment Adviser via phone or email, they are there to help answer any questions or concerns you may have - 0800 272 442.
