“CORDET’s investment in Riverdale Healthcare has helped us to secure necessary capital to achieve our goals.

For us, CORDET is therefore a long-term companion in our journey.” – Riverdale Healthcare
“From when we invested in ecovium and until the CORDET loan was refinanced, CORDET was a very helpful and constructively supportive lender and partner. Our investment in ecovium was the first investment on which we partnered with CORDET, and the transaction set the scene for a long-lasting cooperation between CORDET and FSN Capital based on trust and shared goals.” – FSN Capital
“The financing solution from CORDET has helped PDSVision to secure necessary investments to realise our outlined growth journey. The team has been an approachable and cooperative partner throughout the investment, allowing us to flexibly adjust terms to meet our needs as a company. For us, CORDET is more than merely a finance provider but also a long-term financing partner in our continuous journey.” – PDSVision
