The Ardian team brought a deep sector knowledge, which I think allowed them not only to do a terrific job in that due diligence period, but also meant they could work very efficiently within our deal time frame.

Ardian and Arsenal both want our investments to benefit society and by working together in this case we’ve reduced the time it takes to set up a clinical trial by many months, which means new drugs come to market as quickly and safely as possible.
