Important Announcement for Members

Having entered a nationwide Alert Level 4 COVID-19 lock-down period, Summer and Forsyth Barr will continue to provide services on an uninterrupted basis.

As all New Zealanders and their families enter a period of community isolation, at Summer and Forsyth Barr we have put in place plans to ensure that all members continue to receive the high levels of service and attention which are an essential part of our relationship with you.

We are well set up to continue to provide all services throughout the period in which New Zealand is considered to be at COVID-19 Alert Level 4 status.

We are here to help you

I understand that many will be anxious about the uncertainty created by the changes to our normal social and business interaction. I wish to assure you that the entire team is available at all times to respond to any needs you may have.

While staff will be working remotely from home, they will have full access to all the tools and information they require to be able to provide service to you. In all cases, you can expect our usual high standards of service.

We remain in close contact with our research partners offshore, while our New Zealand-based research team is continuing to evaluate the impact of the current COVID-19 environment on New Zealand’s economy and corporate sector, with their focus on identifying new opportunities as the investment environment unfolds in the period ahead. 

Summer members can read research from Forsyth Barr, including the latest special reports on COVID-19 here.

If you have any questions, please contact your Forsyth Barr Investment Adviser or point of contact at Summer.

Best wishes to you and your families.

Neil Paviour-Smith
Managing Director
