Dear Valued Brokers, Clients and Partners
South Africa is now well into the lockdown period as announced by our President, Cyril Ramaphosa in an attempt to flatten the curve of infection and arrested the potentially devastating effects of the COVID-19 virus.
Consort fully supports the steps taken by the government in attempting to reduce the humanitarian crisis that this virus has the potential of creating.
We have taken the necessary steps to enable each team member within Consort to have remote access to the office and as a result, they are all able to continue working from their homes, providing a sense of certainty for our brokers and clients during this time.
The lockdown period will however have some dire consequences on the economy, with the small to medium business sector due to feel the most pressure. We are acutely aware of the difficulties some of our insureds will find themselves in as they navigate through this difficult time. We believe that by working together with our clients, and with our inherent resilience as a nation, we can overcome this period.
Consort remains committed to our clients and in particular those clients that face the greatest challenge during this lockdown period. We are ready and willing to assist in the following ways:
There is no doubt that the world is in the midst of arguably the greatest economic milestone of the century. How we as individuals and companies react to the current challenges will determine how we emerge on the other side. Consort is fortunate to have a very experienced, innovative and motivated team, willing to find solutions for challenges that our valued clients face. We remain committed to working with you as we navigate through this time.
