The Aztec Group has been nominated for the ‘Fund Services Team of the Year’ award at the 2011 Unquote British Private Equity Awards. The 2011 Unquote British Private Equity Awards honour innovation and excellence in private equity and venture capital.
To determine the shortlist all entries were assessed by the Unquote Advisory Panel which is made up of industry experts. Shortlisted entries were announced in early August and are open for voting. The result will be determined by a combination of the Advisory Panel’s review and the voting.
The winner will be announced at the Awards Dinner on 22 September 2011 which is being held at the Mayfair Millennium Hotel in London.
Commenting on the nomination, Aztec Group’s COO and co-founder, Carol Wilson, said “This nomination is a reflection of the success of the Group and we are pleased to be recognised as a leading player in the fund administration industry. As one of the few owner managed and independent fund administrators left, we are very proud of what we, as a team, have achieved. We have loyal and able staff, a hugely supportive client base and a strong network of business associates, all of whom have been instrumental in the evolution of the business over the past ten years.”
The Aztec Group was founded in Jersey ten years ago to take advantage of a service gap that was perceived amongst existing institutional and tied administration providers. A successful business model underpinned by a dynamic growth strategy has seen the Group open offices in three additional prime fund operating locations. The second office opened in Guernsey in 2006, followed by Luxembourg in 2007, London in 2008, and a fully operational UK presence in 2010.
The Group now employs over 100 staff across the five offices and prides itself on a skilled and stable workforce. The business has excellent staff retention which has been maintained year on year in the mid 90’s in percentage terms. This, combined with the fact that the majority of client facing staff are professionally qualified, has attracted a strong and diverse client base from across Europe.
The Group has seen its funds under management grow by around 20% to over $31 billion in the last 12 months which is largely due to the take on of nine new clients including major industry names such as Henderson Global Investors, Inflexion Private Equity and PPM Managers. Read more...
