Coronavirus Update:


At Black Swan Capital Europe, as a responsible business, we like to be proactive and to consider the well-being of our clients at all times. During this period we remain accessible and contactable to all our clients as usual. If you have any concerns you can continue to contact us at your convenience.

Whilst the risk from the current coronavirus outbreak remains low to most people, we are conscious that many of our clients in various parts of the EU are potentially more vulnerable.

Recent guidelines from many European health authorities have recommended limiting travel and restriction of gathering in large groups.

For this reason, and to do our part to limit the potential spread of the Covid-19, as the directors of Black Swan Capital Europe, we have decided that, from 13th of March 2020, all internal and external meetings will be held via video or voice calls. These will be recorded as required and stored in compliance with MiFID ii  guidelines. We will maintain this position until such time as the relevant authorities confirm that any health risk to our clients, colleagues and partners is suitably reduced. If you have any questions feel free to contact us and we remain available to help you manage your financial lives.

“We provide clear fee-for-service investment advice and 21st Century solutions.”

Chief Executive Officer, Black Swan Capital
