Making a wise investment in Basildon

IFDS is the UK’s leading supplier of investor-recordkeeping services and systems to the UK domestic and European “offshore” market. Their solutions are used by retail and institutional fund managers, fund distributors, investment trust companies and providers of group and individual pensions.

IFDS moved to Basildon, on the Essex side of the Thames Gateway in 2002 and chose the area for a number of reasons:

  • The location was excellent with great access to the Greater South East for employees and for customers
  • The building and the whole environment presented the right impression for existing and potential clients
  • The building was a BREEAM award winner – and the environmental credentials were important to the business

In the words of their Marketing Director Julian Rice
“We moved to Basildon during 2002, the move has, and still is, proving successful from many perspectives such as location, staffing and operationally.”
