As the South African COVID-19 lockdown have moved to level 3 and the phased opening of the economy have started, SGM will continue its operations with most of our employees working safely from home.

Leveraging on technology we continue to meet with our customers and our employees virtually and we would like to assure you that, wherever feasible, our operations continue regardless.  A robust Business Continuity Plan, IT systems and infrastructure ensure ensure that we are still able to service our clients during this extremely unsettling time.

We are guided by national and international authorities and all our offices outside of South Africa are operating as per normal.

Stay safe and keep well!
