Protection in uncertain times

The virus has had unexpected human and economic consequences across many countries and has resulted in significant market and interest rate volatility. Along with its health impacts, the coronavirus is rapidly disrupting business and consumer activity in affected areas and beyond.

Managing the fallout

We have prepared some general guidance on COVID-19: What US business leaders should know, which addresses six key areas of focus, consisting of crisis management and response; workforce; operations and supply chain; finance and liquidity; tax and trade; and strategy and brand. Here is our take on some additional issues that insurance companies, in particular, might face. We also offer some thoughts on what you can do now to manage effectively through the uncertainty.

Accounting & Finance issues
