Business Continuity

NGAM Distribution, L.P. maintains a business continuity plan designed to minimize disruption in services provided to shareholders and allow for the restoration of critical resources as well as the use of alternate locations should access to our offices become unavailable. This plan identifies mission critical processes and provides for their recovery in the event of various types of business interruptions. This plan is continually evaluated and amended as necessary to ensure that the customer impact of any business interruption is minimized.
