Xavier Pujos comments:

“Coronavirus (Covid-19) is already having a tremendous impact on markets, businesses and most of all, people.  This new type of risk requires financial firms to act with wisdom, as well as agility to adjust their behaviours and client interactions, particularly as we are now entering a possibly prolonged situation.  Firms need to consider a wide range of responses to business continuity, disaster recovery, payments, even simple access to cash.  As experts in advising financial firms on all aspects of their operations, this paper offers a summary overview of the current position, in a very fast-moving context.”
