Aztec Group has once again been named fund administrator of the year at the 2015 European Private Equity Awards in London.
Aztec has had a remarkably successful year providing outsourcing solutions and continuing its solid performance in Guernsey. The awards recognise the best of European private equity, with Aztec taking the lead over a number of other reputable shortlisted fund and corporate service providers. Giving the reason behind their choice, the judges, a panel of 20 industry experts, were particularly impressed with the Group's 'stand-our year' in 2014, citing 'impressive client growth, adding new onshore offerings and increasing its own staff-base with fresh talent'.
Since last being recognised as the fund administrator of the year in 2014, Aztec has focussed on evolving its core service offering to meet the needs of fund promoters and investors, following an increasing trend in solutions being delivered from multiple fund and SPV locations. Aztec now employs more than 70 staff in its Guernsey office, while maintaining a staff retention rate of over 90% since it was founded in 2001. More than 80% of its staff are also either fully qualified or in training for professional qualifications.
Commenting on the award, Rob Jones, Group Head of Client Services and Director in Aztec's Guernsey office, said, "Being recognised by the wider industry is the greatest testament to the passion and dedication our teams put into our comprehensive service delivery. Striving to be the 'bright alternative' in fund and corporate services since day one, we focus on understanding our clients and providing them with outsourcing solutions delivered by client-centric teams and custom built technology. We are humbled that our efforts have been recognised for the second consecutive year not only by our clients but by a wider private equity community."
In addition to Aztec's continued success in Guernsey, the Group has established offices in Stockholm and Amsterdam in the past 12 months, which were opened to assist its longstanding clients looking for additional local support in these jurisdictions.
