RDCP Group is a sector-agnostic investment firm set up by Sameer Rizvi and Iryna Dubylovska in 2015. They had a vision of creating a permanent capital investment model where they look to own the business’ long-term with the aim to make good, permanent changes for a brighter future.
RDCP oversee operations of a portfolio of businesses, which includes RDCP infrastructure incorporating Killingley, Macair fmi and Buxton Water. They needed to grow their presence in the engineering and infrastructure sector and required a finance provider to help support them on their journey.
When some traditional lenders wouldn’t support their expansion strategy, Aldermore provided the finance they needed to progress with new acquisitions and grow the business.
“It was clear that Aldermore actually had a grasp of the intricacies of the problems associated with being an SME in construction, it massively helped when the pandemic hit. Some of our clients basically pulled the shutters down and stopped doing everything, so we had an instant drop in turnover which put a massive strain on cashflow. If we’d had traditional banking, we would have been in trouble.” Gareth Dillon, Manging Director at RDCP infrastructure
