How the industry is returning to the office

In a recent article for Professional Pensions (page 35), SECOR’s Head of Client Advisory, Kam Chang, talks about how the organization looks to maintain a vibrant office environment as the pandemic recedes.

Secor Asset Management is set to implement a hybrid model to maintain a “vibrant office environment” while giving team members the flexibility to work from home. The fiduciary and asset manager says it will provide its team greater flexibility by allowing them to work from the office and from home on a flexible basis – a combination it believes will maximise the benefits to both its staff and clients. However, while Secor says it has been encouraged by how well its staff have adapted to servicing its clients from home, it believes “office interactions remain instrumental to developing the best solutions for our clients and fostering the development of our talented next generation”.

Secor adds it is currently looking for new London office space to accommodate its growing team in the city and is leveraging technology solutions to improve the experience for its staff and clients. Secor partner and head of its London office Kam Chang explains: “While working from home has provided many new benefits that are here to stay, we are excited to have people back in the office and re–engage with many of the social interactions we have missed in recent months – including afterwork gatherings, in person client meetings, teambuilding events, and our charitable initiatives.”
