A colleague asked the lawyer we were dealing with if she had a data room provider she preferred working with; she answered Ansarada, and described it as the ‘Mac equivalent’ to a lot of the Windows platforms that were out there. Robust, intuitive, and easy to use, and as soon as we had the demo, we were sold on it.Keith Driver, Head of Investor Relations, Sustainable Development Capital LLP (SDCL)
Keith Driver has always had a keen interest in sustainability, and is passionate about helping to power sustainable, innovative energy developments.
“In 2018, we launched the Sustainable Development Capital Energy Efficient Income Trust, a London Stock Exchange-listed, first-of-its-kind investment trust vehicle focused on energy efficiency and decentralised generation assets.
Paramount to everything we do, as well as providing a solid and attractive return to our investors, is to take things from a sustainable perspective and ensure that everything we do provides clean, cheaper and more reliable power.
AI technology and a number of the other factors coming into play across the markets at the moment are going to have a big impact on what we do as investment house. And as we see new products - and improvements on existing products - coming into the market, we see that as holding a great deal of positive attributes in what we’re looking to achieve as an investment house.
During a corporate finance deal, a colleague asked the lawyer we were dealing with if she had a data room provider she preferred working with; she answered Ansarada, and described it as the ‘Mac equivalent’ to a lot of the Windows platforms that were out there. Robust, intuitive, and easy to use - and as soon as we had the demo, we were sold on it.
One of the great things about the Ansarada support service is that they are always very friendly, which isn’t necessarily the case I can speak for myself at 4am on a Sunday trying to get the deal closed! They use a follow-the-sun model where you can reach someone in New York, London, Sydney, depending on the time zone.
It’s always good to be able to speak to good, conscientious people that want to help at the end of a phone line, especially when the person calling them at 4am in the morning isn’t necessarily at their most proactive, shall we say!”
Ansarada is beyond proud to be supporting Keith and his efforts to power sustainable innovative energy developments. The value that his work is generating for the environment and the world at large is incontestably an example to follow.
