Measures We’ve Implemented at Glacier
The current situation calls for responsible decisions and actions, and we have implemented many measures to support COVID-19 prevention efforts, including facilitating the personal hygiene protocols as set out by the World Health Organisation (WHO), practically implementing social distancing, and ensuring that our vulnerable employees self-isolate.
From Friday, 27 March until 16 April 2020, most of our staff will be working from home in accordance with the national lockdown as directed by President Ramaphosa. Therefore, we request that you please make use of telephonic or other digital service channels to reach out to us.
If It Can Be Done by Us, It Will Be
As an essential services provider, we are doing everything possible and within our control to ensure that there is no disruption in our service commitment to you. So, whether you need fund or product information, have a fund administration query, or you need an instruction to be processed, Glacier’s Sales and Client Service teams are fully operational via digital channels to respond to you.
However, if you are used to receiving mail via international couriers or the postal services, you might experience a delay as a result of the lockdown of non-essential services.

We have several digital channels which facilitate remote servicing.
