Business Continuity Plan
To address possible interruptions to the normal course of business, R&R maintains a Business Continuity Plan (BCP). The BCP includes contingency operation guidelines and procedures. The BCP is reviewed annually and updated as necessary. In general, R&R uses, where applicable, secure cloud-based systems, with redundancy, enabling dynamic tactical adjustments in the event of a significant business disruption – the scope of which may vary from being limited to the firm, to that of being broader in scope and effect. The firm has made arrangements such that personnel are able to remotely access R&R’s information and systems. It is expected that with the BCP, operations may return to functional state in a reasonably short amount of time relative to the degree of business disruption. R&R welcomes inquiries regarding our BCP.
