Sagicor Life Inc. will be hosting a virtual town hall meeting for clients across the Caribbean.

It is scheduled to take place on Friday, April 24, 2020 at 2 p.m. and is open to clients in the Southern, Dutch and Eastern Caribbean as well as Belize.

The meeting will be streamed via the company’s Facebook Page and YouTube channels, and on its website sagicor.com via the url www.sagicor.com/en/Virtual-Townhall. It can be accessed via Sagicor Life Inc. or Sagicor General’s Instagram pages, on Twitter via SagicorGroup and LinkedIn via Sagicor Financial Corporation. Clients are encouraged to email their queries to InThisTogether@sagicor.com.

It will also be streamed on The Nation Barbados’ Facebook page.

The virtual town hall panelists will be Ravi Rambarran, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sagicor Life Inc. and business leaders from Trinidad & Tobago, Dutch Caribbean, the OECS and Barbados. 

Rambarran described the event as a continuation of the company’s commitment to facilitating meaningful engagement with its valued clients and stakeholders during COVID -19.

“As a company we have a made promise to improve the lives of those in the communities within which we operate, and this cannot be achieved without understanding the needs of these individuals and their families,” he said.

“Over the last few weeks we have rolled out a number of initiatives aimed at providing relief and support to our clients and the wider public and we want to use this town hall meeting to gain some feedback on those, as well as listen to and address any concerns they may have.”

Since the confirmation of COVID-19 cases in the Caribbean and the subsequent institution of curfews and lockdowns across the region, Sagicor has instituted several policies aimed at the continuation of business, providing financial relief for those whose incomes have been negatively impacted, donating resources to support the most vulnerable and at risk, along with assisting families to cope with the imposed restrictions around movement and socialisation.

The company has assisted clients by facilitating the early payment of pension to pensioners to ensure their ability to meet their current financial needs, in addition to offering the option of a deferral of payments on both residential and commercial mortgages.

Sagicor also donated US$1Million to support COVID-19 containment and treatment efforts across the region, while several thousands of dollars having been donated to provide care packages to the elderly, homeless and disadvantaged members of the society. (PR/SAT)
