Before joining the Group, Dave provided audit and assurance services to various private and public sector organisations for the best part of nine years. Looking to move away from a larger corporate environment, Dave saw great potential in joining the Group, where the opportunity to develop new ideas and service offerings is encouraged.
Joining the Group in 2013, Dave had the opportunity to support the design of the Group Depositary Services offering. This experience provided Dave with comprehensive knowledge and insights into best practices and solutions that address the regulatory requirements of fund managers in the most efficient and non-intrusive way. Dave comments “Our legal team has vast knowledge and understanding of the AIFM Directive. I am glad I could utilise my previous audit and assurance services experience in designing robust and efficient procedures to ensure that fund controls and processes are AIFMD compliant.”
“Having joined Aztec from a big four accounting firm, Dave brings years of audit experience to our depositary services offering. Dave’s enthusiasm and passion for depositary services is self-evident in his day to day work and with his excellent regulatory and technical knowledge, Dave has been instrumental in developing and growing our depositary business.” – James Duffield, Head of Business Development
Reflecting on the Aztec Group’s overall success, Dave comments “Aztec has always put great emphasis on building long term relationships based on honesty and trust. You can see this approach has proven to be invaluable to both our clients and staff.”
Dave is a chartered accountant (ICAEW) and also holds a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Bath.
