RA Capital Advisors LLC (“RA Capital”) is committed to protecting the interests of our clients, the safety of our employees and the protection of firm property in the event of a business disruption. RA Capital has established a Business Continuity Plan (“BCP”) that details how we will respond to events that significantly disrupt our business.
Our BCP covers areas affected by a business disruption of any type, and includes back-up and recovery of customer and business records; identification and backup of all mission-critical systems; financial and operational risk assessments; alternate communication between RA Capital and its clients, employees and regulators; alternate physical locations; and regulatory reporting. Our plan is designed to enable the firm to recover quickly and restore business operations as quickly as possible, safeguard our employees and property, protect the firm’s books and records and assure our clients prompt service through an alternative location.
There is a broad range of scenarios under which a business disruption might occur. Internal disruptions include those business disruptions that affect only our firm’s ability to communicate and do business, such as a fire or power failure in our building. External business disruptions affect a number of firms, such as a terrorist attack, earthquake, widespread fires, or a large-scale, regional disruption.
RA Capital conducts all of its business at its sole office located at 11988 El Camino Real, Suite 350, San Diego, California. In the event of a disaster that affects the use of our office, we will transfer operations to an alternate location as necessary in order to restore critical operations as soon as possible. Recovery will begin on local computer hardware as quickly as possible given the events. We plan to begin recovery immediately and notify clients how to contact us through e-mails, land phone lines and cellular phones, as available.
Should a larger scale external business disruption occur, it is our goal to resume business activities as soon as practical given the specific circumstances surrounding the disruption. Such a disruption may or may not require a relocation of operations to an alternate site. In any case, our goal remains to continue our business and protect the assets of our customers to the best of our abilities. RA Capital has developed an emergency contact list for employees, customers, and regulators, as well as formal protocols to assist in avoiding confusion and to effectively resume business.
