Business Continuity Plan

Although it is impossible to plan for every possible significant business interruption, Weitz Investment Management, Inc. and Weitz Securities, Inc. have adopted a Business Continuity Plan (BCP) intended to ensure that service disruptions are minimized in the event of a natural or man-made disaster or other type of emergency. In the event of such a disruption, every effort will be made to resume critical operations (funds valuation, transaction processing, security trading and answering client inquiries) within 24 hours. 

Our BCP encompasses all operating areas within our firm: Client Services, Accounting, Research, Trading, Transfer Agent and Information Systems. It includes record retention and data backup measures as well as the identification of response teams and alternative processing sites. Our plans are regularly updated and tested.  

In the unlikely event of a natural or man-made disaster, our primary objective is to safeguard our employees and our physical property so that we can quickly resume operations. Other objectives include safeguarding our clients’ assets and retaining our records. If a disaster should occur that renders our office location unavailable, those staff members associated with business critical services will be relocated to offsite locations in order to resume normal operations as quickly as possible. If a disruption occurs of such magnitude that it prevents us from calculating our funds’ prices, the processing of transactions may be delayed until fund pricing resumes.

If a business disruption should occur, our phone system will be rerouted to an offsite location where you can continue to reach us at our normal business number, (800) 304-9745 during normal business hours. If a significant disaster disrupts your ability to contact us by phone, please access our website at www.weitzinvestments.com.
