BDA reacts to the tragic loss of life in Itaewon, Seoul

Over 150 people died in a tragic accident this weekend in Itaewon, Seoul. 

The whole team at BDA Partners is deeply saddened by these events. Our nine offices worldwide mourn together. We want to offer deep condolences to the families of the victims, and we wish for a speedy recovery to all those injured.

Our colleagues in Seoul and around the world will be undertaking planned initiatives in the coming three weeks, to offer charitable and pro bono help to the communities in which we work, and especially to those less fortunate than ourselves. 

As we begin this period of “BDA gives back”, we are reminded of the bonds of friendship and humanity that we all share. We will all redouble our efforts to do good, and to do well. 

Yours sincerely, 

Euan Rellie
Managing Partner and Co-Founder
