To Our Clients and Colleagues,
As we approach the Memorial Day weekend, we can be hopeful and expectant this holiday weekend will be very different from last year. Much has occurred around the globe over the last 16 months since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. We have seen lives impacted in every corner of America and want to reflect on the thousands of our fellow citizens who perished from complications with COVID-19 as well as the millions who suffered through illness and other setbacks. As we honor our military heroes during this Memorial Day, we can take some liberty to also honor our civilian heroes.
Closer to home, we are working hard to play our part to defeat this pandemic while always trying to uphold a higher standard in all that we do to serve you. As a brief update on Cary Street Partners, we are pleased to report that beginning June 1st, our employees will be returning to our offices on a full-time basis. In most jurisdictions over the last year, financial firms like ours were technically open throughout the pandemic. In response, we maintained relaxed physical office requirements and followed all applicable federal, state, and local guidelines to keep our staff and visitors as safe as possible. We will continue to provide telecommuting and remote work options for those who have need and request an exception. We will continue to follow the updated CDC and other COVID-19 guidelines and protocols as we make these changes and return to our physical office environment. We look forward to welcoming you in person the next time you would like to visit.
As evidence of the great distance our nation has come, we are attaching for your listening pleasure our latest podcast in our Cary Street Partners CIO Conversation Series, Innovations in Health Sciences, which features a timely and important discussion on the “silver linings” that are emerging from the scourge of the pandemic. This podcast is the latest in a monthly series that began running earlier this year with the goal of focusing on newsworthy and timely topics with domain experts. This piece speaks in depth about the roots of a health care technology revolution that is exploding on the scene of daily life.
All these resources can be found on our website, carystreetpartners.com. Feel free to look. We also invite you to subscribe to these materials by connecting to our Cary Street Partners LinkedIn page and through our Cary Street Partners CIO Conversation Series podcast found on Apple Podcast, Google and Spotify.

Happy Memorial Day, 2021
