Tristan Capital Partners, the pan-European real estate investment manager, has entered into a framework agreement with leading virtual data room provider Drooms to collect, structure, host and exchange documents via a single online platform.
The move from a number of standalone software systems to a single data room provider will facilitate the control and organisation of data by Tristan Capital Partners across Europe, reduce complexity, increase efficiency, guarantee fast access to information and optimise response time to rapidly changing market circumstances.
Previously, documents relating to Tristan Capital Partners’ investment portfolio have been stored online with a number of virtual data room (VDR) providers. In February 2017, the firm began centralising its data as part of a longstanding plan to successfully innovate and streamline current practices.
By engaging with the EU service provider hosting the data on EU servers, Tristan Capital Partners is compliant with the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive, EU data protection legislation and European security standards. The adoption of enhanced security measures will continue to reduce risk contributing to a new international standard for data management.
Jean-Philippe Blangy, Managing Director of Portfolio and Asset Management at Tristan Capital Partners commented: “During the procurement stage it was important to identify and select the most effective system and platform for our stakeholders. Drooms provides a number of key benefits. The centralisation of data in a secure and structured way streamlines processes contributing to increased efficiency and the speed at which we can move on assets. Drooms has provided a solution that delivers the technological flexibility and performance required to meet market needs”.
“Our goal is to empower experts by developing intuitive tools that don’t feel like a burden. With everything just a click away, decision-making can be more accurate and businesses more successful” Jan Hoffmeister, Managing Director, Drooms.
Increasing market volatility is speeding up the rate at which companies need to bring their assets to market in order to avoid missing out on favourable opportunities. Offering a high degree of transparency, the new solution will increase reactivity and limit overall time spent on preparing for a transaction. Permanent virtual data rooms for the whole lifecycle of a fund can help make real estate market ready even at extremely short notice.
Drooms, the leading provider of Virtual Data Rooms in Europe, allows companies controlled access to confidential corporate data across company boundaries and specialises in providing tailored solutions for the entire value chain and lifecycle management of assets. Confidential business processes such as commercial real estate sales, mergers and acquisitions, non-performing loans (NPL) transactions and board communications are handled securely, transparently and efficiently by Drooms.
