Aztec Group opens Stockholm office to target Nordics


Fund services provider Aztec Group is set to step up its coverage of the Nordic private equity space by opening a new office in Stockholm, Sweden.

The firm, which was established in 2001 and provides administration services to over 125 funds, currently has offices in Guernsey, Jersey, Luxembourg and the UK.

Andy Brizell, director and senior counsel, has relocated to Stockholm to head up the office. Andy has worked at the Aztec Group since 2010 and will continue his role as head of depositary services supported by his depositary team.

Andy commented, “Our Stockholm office combined with our Channel Islands and Luxembourg offices will enable us to deliver a comprehensive outsourcing solution to many Nordic-based fund managers.

Edward Moore, Aztec Group’s CEO, added, “Over the last ten years, we have grown our Nordic client base and have established a significant presence in the region. Our use of technology to drive efficiencies and enhance investor relations, combined with our value added services which improve a fund’s performance, are major developments in the industry and we felt this was the right time to bring our service offering to the local market and continue to support the ever evolving needs of our Nordic clients.”

Aztec Group has over $80bn under management, focusing predominantly on private equity and real estate funds.
