Euroclear has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation over the past weeks. You will appreciate our primary concern is the wellbeing of our staff, clients and the wider public, as well as safeguarding clients’ and Euroclear’s assets. Therefore we have taken appropriate measures to protect the health and safety of our people and to ensure the continuity of our business.
In line with direction and guidance from the relevant national and international health bodies, we have activated extensive homeworking across all our locations. This is working well. As such, we are now implementing in full the measures taken by the national government authorities, including those announced in France and Belgium.
In practice, this means that, besides a very limited number of roles, the entire Euroclear group workforce is working remotely and social distancing measures are in force.
Despite the exceptional volumes being processed across the financial markets, Euroclear is performing well. All services are up and running as normal.
Our focus remains on helping clients and ensuring continuity of our services as a financial market infrastructure.
We thank you for your understanding as we all adapt to these challenges.
