Staying Safe - 22 April 2020

Highlights of what is new here at Charles Stanley to help keep you both safe and informed, along with your market update.


Paul Abberley


Over the past week, we have seen the lockdown extended and today I would like to highlight what’s new here at Charles Stanley to help keep you both safe and informed, as well as to give you an update on what’s been happening in the markets.  

Be vigilant against fraud

In the last few days, we have had reports that several clients have received an email from someone pretending to be from Charles Stanley.

Fortunately, it was obvious it was a fake, but criminals are increasingly posing as official sources to obtain personal and financial details.  The City of London Police has seen the same level of cyber-criminal activity in three days that they would normally see in a month.

Please stay vigilant and take particular care.  If the contact is unexpected and you are asked to do anything, such as click on a link or call a phone number, stop and independently verify that contact first.  Share any sensitive information through the website or call your usual Charles Stanley contact. 

Charles Stanley Radio

For useful information on the ‘Importance of Staying Vigilant Online’, you can listen to an interview with our Head of Information and Cyber Security, John Harrison on Charles Stanley Radio.

In another episode, our research team also share their collective views on the markets.

‘Housebound’ videos

In addition, we have some new ‘Housebound’ Facetime videos on our social media channels.  Watch interviews with our Group HR Director, Kate Griffiths-Lambeth on obstacles faced by the HR team in the current environment; later this week we catch up with Ben Money-Coutts our Chief Financial Officer.

Charles Stanley Community

This week you can see new content from a number of our partners on the Charles Stanley Community page, to inspire you with things to do or learn, including:
