The Kimura team have been working remotely for a week now and we are adapting quickly to this different environment and its challenges.
Face to face meetings via video conferencing facilities, as well as group chats and phone calls keep the Kimura team in touch with each other and with our borrowers and investors.
We have started a regular update in addition to our monthly factsheet in the form of a written commentary piece released at the beginning of each month. This offers more detail on how trade finance is impacted by Covid19 and how our own lending portfolio is being shaped by the current climate of risks. Please get in contact if you would like to be added to this distribution list.
The current situation is, of course, changing by the day and is unprecedented in terms of the unanticipated nature of the crisis. It is now expected that for developed markets, economic activity might suffer the largest quarter on quarter contraction in modern history.
We remain focussed on our strategy, aiming to be as fully deployed as possible and maintaining our diversification of jurisdictions, commodities and obligors. At the same time we will remain diligent in watching for stress within the portfolio and acting quickly to protect our interests if and when necessary.
We are available and happy to arrange calls with you to talk in more detail, please request via your usual contact or reach us via firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Meanwhile we wish you and your families remain safe and well.
