Aztec Group has been named Fund Advisory Firm of the Year 2016 in the unquote” British Private Equity Awards this month, following another strong year supporting the British private equity industry.

The awards celebrate both innovation and consistent excellence in private equity and venture capital, as well as honouring the industry's ability to help sustain and build British businesses.

The judging panel, which was comprised of leading industry experts, shortlisted three fund services providers who have set the standard for excellence in client service over the last year, before opening the vote up to the wider industry for the final decision.

Founded in 2001 in Jersey and established in Guernsey in 2006, the Aztec Group is now one of the leading fund and corporate services providers in Europe. Employing over 400 employees in the Channel Islands alone, the Aztec Group delivers award-winning outsourcing solutions to the alternative assets industry from its key onshore and offshore jurisdictions in Guernsey, Jersey, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

Alan Ross, Head of Private Equity Fund Services, commented:

“Winning prestigious Awards like this gives our staff the recognition they deserve and helps us to appreciate the perception the Aztec Group brand has in the marketplace. It affirms our belief that investing in the training and development of our people, and in our systems and technology, is key to maintaining excellent service quality across our business, even during times of rapid growth.”

Since being recognised as the Fund Administrator of the Year last in 2015, the Aztec Group has continued to evolve its service offering to meet the needs of fund managers and investors, delivering multi-jurisdictional solutions and expertise through an extensive network of Pan-European offices.

Alan continued: “Most importantly, I believe that this continuous industry recognition clearly demonstrates that our long-term partnership approach isn’t just a tagline; it’s our proven method of success and what positions us as the outsourcing solutions provider of choice within our industry. We’re delighted that these efforts have once again been recognised by both clients and peers, with further successes in prestigious industry awards. A massive thank you to our staff for all their hard work and dedication and to our clients and business contacts for their continued support.”
