Everybody take the week off, Wall Street firm tells staff

No calls, no emails and no meetings.

That’s the order this week from Aquiline Capital Partners to its staff. The private equity firm is putting all employees on vacation, people familiar with the matter said.

It’s an unusual move intended to recognize employees and avoid burnout from the physical and mental pressure of the COVID-19 pandemic and the frenetic pace of dealmaking.

Aquiline has more than $6 billion in assets and over 60 employees in its New York headquarters and London office.
