Paul Harrison, Director

Heading up the Group’s Southampton office, Paul has overall responsibility for our UK onshore offering. In this capacity, he oversees the day-to-day operation of the office, including client relationship management, business development, resourcing, staff development, and general office management matters.

As well as supporting a portfolio of UK onshore investment managers with their outsourcing requirements, Paul also heads up our Advanced Portfolio Services (APS) offering, which provides portfolio company level reporting to institutional investors.

Background and experience

Paul initially joined the Aztec Group’s Jersey office in 2002 as Head of Accounts, a role in which he headed up accounting and reporting activity across all asset classes.

In his first years with us, Paul played an instrumental role in the implementation of leading financial systems, as well as the controls and processes around them. He also set up our in-house financial systems team to establish greater internal support, leading the rollout of eFront’s FrontInvest solution across the Group and its client structures.

Paul relocated to our Southampton office in 2012, where his mandate grew to encompass oversight of all operations for the region and the delivery of services to the institutional investor and pension fund markets. He also established our depositary offering in coordination with several in-house legal specialists.

Prior to joining the Group, Paul worked as an auditor at PwC, where he also qualified as an accountant.

Qualifications

  • Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (chartered accountant).
  • Degree in Business Economics from University of Exeter.

Outside of the office

Paul’s spare time is mostly dedicated to being a Dad and vicariously reliving his youth through his own two sons. Whether he’s kicking a ball around with them and his dog, or fitting in time to take a picturesque walk around the coast of England, above all else, Paul enjoys making the most of the time he has with his family.
