As the world continues to face challenges in dealing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we are taking steps to provide some safety measures to our clients and staff.
Given the wide-ranging impact of the pandemic and in line with advice from government and the World Health Organisation (WHO), limiting unnecessary human contact is an invaluable precaution. We therefore strongly encourage you to use our suite of digital tools and trading platforms for your financial needs. Digital platforms provide an efficient, fast, safe and nearly instantaneous solution to many, if not all your investing requirements, away from public spaces.
KEEPING EVERYONE SAFE
The safety of our employees and clients is something that we care deeply about. While the extent of COVID-19 is still unknown, our plans have the necessary flexibility to evolve as the situation requires.
As a result, Sharenet will unfortunately not be accommodating client meetings at a branch level, for the forceable future. As soon as the situation changes, we will advise you, our valuable clients accordingly.
The widespread concern around COVID-19 creates the perfect opportunity for cybercriminals to defraud customers. To ensure protection against targeted ransomware and Malware attacks, remember to install the latest version of a Multi-layered Antivirus program and never share your account details online or via email.
Sharenet remains fully operational and should you experience any technical difficulty, rest assured that our superior support staff is ready to assist with any technical queries and can be reached on:
