An Update from Our CEO Karim Ali

Building upon the significant progress during H1 this year,  we have had an extremely productive and transformative Q3 which has continued into Q4 at the time of writing this. There has been a deep and focused strategy on the “BRD Investment Group” in recent months – specifically in aligning the operations, technology, integration, and business development streams of the three portfolio companies. We have been working with our sister companies nadi Solutions and STREETS, on several initiatives including IT support, QC and development requirements. Even tighter collaboration with them is planned for 2023. We are moving to a new office in the City of London, specifically the Royal Exchange building opposite Bank station and the Bank of England.  Our new offices provide a central location, more collaborative working space, and better facilities. We look forward to staying in touch in the new year. Wishing you all the best for 2023!
