Asset Management One Co., Ltd. (“AM-One”) would like to express our deepest sympathies to all those who have been affected in any way by the virus at this most difficult time.
As of the 7th April 2020, the Government of Japan has declared a state of emergency covering Tokyo and several other heavily affected regions of the country. The declaration is set to last one month. This is not the same as the lockdown situation seen elsewhere in the world, and basic economic activity, such as seeking medical attention, commuting to work and grocery shopping is allowed, with public transportation infrastructure to remain in operation as much as possible.
In order to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of all our employees at AM-One, we have been recommending the use of remote working at all locations. Given yesterday’s government declaration, going forward we will be transitioning to an entirely work from home based operational framework. For some functions, such as investment management and trading, we will be utilising a mixture of on and off-site in order to maintain the services we provide to our clients while minimising the impact.
AM-One are closely monitoring the global situation and we have already put in place remote working framework at our New York, London, Singapore, and Hong Kong offices.
Thank you for your kind understanding at this time. We will continue to keep a close watch on the situation, working together with our colleagues around the world to ensure we maintain the high quality service our clients expect.
Lastly, AM-One would also like to express our deepest gratitude to the healthcare workers on the frontlines of this crisis.
