Last Updated: 25 May 2018

We hope all our clients, service providers, suppliers, colleagues and their families remain safe and well at this time of uncertainty surrounding the Covid19 pandemic. On Friday March 27th the Irish government announced further restrictions on work and movement aimed at curbing the spread of coronavirus. In light of this we want to reassure our clients that we continue to operate our business seamlessly at this time through remote access and are available at all times should we be needed. We remain steadfast in our commitment to the careful, coherent and confident stewardship of our clients assets. This remains the case after these latest announcements from the Irish government and the temporary closure of the office to staff.

You can contact KBIGI through the normal channels and your regular client servicing executive will be available to provide any support you require in respect of your investments.
