March 16, 2020 – At Saturna Capital, the health and safety of our investors, crewmembers, and community are top priorities. Like many of you, we’re closely monitoring the rapidly evolving coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), including guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Whatcom County Health Department.
Many of our employees are able to work remotely and those that can have been instructed to do so. Within our offices, for employees whose duties require them to come into the office, we’re moving desks further apart and frequently wiping down surfaces with disinfectant.
One of the key features of mutual funds is that they are generally priced every day the US markets are open. This allows us to process purchase orders and redemption requests on a near daily basis. Saturna Capital will honor this commitment.
While the economic impacts of the pandemic response are still playing out, we believe our active, long-term approach to investing can provide a measure of risk mitigation during market gyrations. Saturna’s Core Values include risk management and education; to these ends, we’ve created education materials about our approach, risk in the markets, and various other topics that you’re welcome to peruse. We’ve provided some links below.
We encourage mutual fund, brokerage, and 401(k) investors to use our various online tools. If you haven’t signed up for online access to your mutual fund or brokerage account, there are links to the forms to do so below. 401(k) investors should contact their plan administrator for access.
Thank you for your patience and grace as we work to keep our investors, crewmembers, and community healthy and safe.
Jane Carten, President & CEO
