Andy Brizell, Head of Legal and Group Head of Depositary Services

Andy joined the Aztec Group in 2010 as Senior Counsel and provides a broad range of legal advice across the Group. In 2014, Andy relocated to Sweden in order to act as Managing Director of the Aztec Group's Stockholm office. He also heads up the Group's depositary services business function.

After graduating from the University of Durham, Andy converted to law and qualified as a corporate lawyer in London, working predominately on private equity backed deals. After spending a number of years in Jersey specialising in fund formation and regulatory law, Andy returned to the UK and qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser.

Looking back at his decision to join the Aztec Group, Andy comments 'I had known about the Group for a number of years before joining and was always impressed by Aztec's entrepreneurial culture and focus on quality, which made the Group stand out from its competitors.'

“I first came across Andy as a newly qualified lawyer.  He had the skill to cut through matters quickly and discern what mattered.  When we started growing the legal team at the Group he was our first choice.” - James Bermingham, Director and Group General Counsel.

Having successfully established Aztec's depositary services offering during 2013 Andy relocated to Sweden to act as Managing Director of the Group's Stockholm office. Commenting on the Group's expansion into Sweden, Andy reflects 'Sweden has been a key jurisdiction for the Group for many years so it's great to finally have an office here. Recent pan-European regulatory changes have forced industry to re-think the way in which private equity funds are structured and where they are based. In Sweden in particular, these regulatory changes have combined with political, social and fiscal drivers, to push funds onshore and we're delighted to be here to support our clients through these changes.'

Andy is a qualified solicitor, a chartered tax adviser (CTA) and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Durham.  Andy is currently studying part time for a Master of Science degree in Forestry.
