At South River, we remain committed to our clients whilst also ensuring the health and well-being of our team members. We are highly conscious of the trust you place in on us to protect and grow your assets, especially during these unpredictable times.

To help minimise the spread of coronavirus, we are carefully following the latest Government and health experts’ recommendations, which means all of our staff are working safely from their homes. South River team members are in a position to connect securely to all of our systems and applications we need to perform our day-to-day activities remotely for an extended period. We have not experienced any disruption to our operations as a result. We are in regular contact with our third-party service providers and continue to work closely with all of our stakeholders to ensure business operates at the same high level you have experienced in the past.
Here at South River, we provide the highest level of transparency and open communication with you during these unprecedented times.
