Attention: FI Brokering Participants and Selling Agents
In light of the evolving situation where Luzon has been placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) our offices as well as our 3rd party courier service provider continue to operate with skeletal workforces on site as required under the ECQ guidelines. Further, the Post Office which handles provincial deliveries has suspended its services until the end of the ECQ.
Given this, please be informed that there may be delays in the delivery of Registry Reports for investors who opted for the physical of their Statement of Accounts and Securities Receipt/Delivery Confirmation among others. For the upcoming 1st Quarter SOA, should your clients wish to change their mode of delivery to email, kindly send us an Amendment Request no later than 30 March 2020.
For your guidance.
