PEOPLE - profile

Richard Hills, Non-Executive Chairman

A director of three UK LSE listed investment trusts and a shale gas exploration company which is quoted on AIM, Richard is also the Chairman of a private potash exploration company operating in continental Europe and acts as the investment advisor to the Lord Hanson Charitable Foundation.

After spending a number of years undertaking directorship roles at Henderson Administration plc, Richard moved to Aberdeen Trust plc where he became Chairman of the Investment Committee and Head of UK equities. Here he was instrumental in launching their New Asia Fund, the first external fund ever sponsored by Goldman Sachs. Richard then went on to found Argyll Investment Management Ltd and in 1996 wrote the highly successful "Hedge Funds – An Introduction to Skill Based Investment".

Since being with the Aztec Group, Richard's seen the organic growth remain controlled and the focus staying on our long term goal, building relationships that last. Reflecting on our growth, Richard comments, "It's a very balanced Group who think things through. Although there's no bureaucratic red tape in place due to our owner managed structure, we still think before we act and everything's meticulously planned. We employ the right people who all understand what the focus is on, so we remain on the right track."

Discussing the client service delivery, Richard comments, "At the operational level, due to the ten or so years we've invested people into our technology we can deliver a more refined product. That, in addition to the staff's goals being aligned, mean we can create reputable services backed up by open and strong client relationships."

During his career Richard has used his entrepreneurial skills widely. He was a founder director of the innovative, internet based FairFX plc which supplies low-cost travel currency and he has worked as a consultant with various investment businesses providing strategic advice.
