Business Continuity PlanDividend Capital Diversified Property Fund has developed a Business Continuity Plan regarding its response to events that significantly disrupt its business. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, the Firm must remain flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information on our business continuity plan.
Contacting UsIf after a significant business disruption you cannot contact us as you usually do, go to our website at www.dividendcapitaldiversified.com for further information on the state of our operations or other important information.
Our Business Continuity PlanWe plan to recover as quickly as possible and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting the firm's books and records, and allowing our customers to transact business. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our Firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.
Our business continuity plan addresses: data back up and recovery; mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical supplier, contractor, bank and counterparty impact; regulatory reporting; and assuring our customers prompt access to their funds and securities if we are unable to continue our business. Every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day and the severity of the disruption. Your transactions and requests for funds and securities could be delayed during this period. This recovery objective may be negatively affected by the unavailability of external resources and circumstances beyond our control.
