Andy Brizell, Head of Legal and Group Head of Depositary Services

Andy is Aztec’s Head of Legal and Group Head of Depositary Services.  Andy joined the Aztec Group in 2010 as Senior Counsel and has always provided a broad range of legal advice across the Group, becoming Head of Legal in 2016.  In addition to his legal role Andy has played an active commercial role in the Group business for a number of years.  Andy was responsible for the establishment of Aztec’s depositary services business in 2013 and he spent just shy of three years in Sweden between 2014 and 2016 establishing the Group’s Stockholm office.  Andy relocated to Jersey in late 2016.

After graduating from the University of Durham, Andy converted to law and qualified as a corporate lawyer in London, working predominately on private equity backed deals. After spending a number of years in Jersey specialising in fund formation and regulatory law, Andy returned to the UK and qualified as a Chartered Tax Adviser.

Looking back at his decision to join the Aztec Group, Andy comments 'I had known about the Group for a number of years before joining and was always impressed by Aztec's entrepreneurial culture and focus on quality, which made the Group stand out from its competitors.'

Following the conclusion of his time in Sweden and his relocation to Jersey in late 2016 Andy reflects: ‘The last three years have been a fascinating time to have been establishing a business in Sweden.  Pan-European regulatory changes have forced industry to re-think the way in which private equity funds are structured and where they are based and the number of domestic Swedish PE/RE funds has increased significantly over this period.  Now that the Swedish office has been successfully established I’m delighted to be able to redefine my role in the Group to focus on and expand our core legal offering and to provide greater commercial and operational support to our rapidly expanding depositary services business.

Andy is a qualified solicitor, a chartered tax adviser (CTA) and holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from the University of Durham. Andy is currently studying part time for a Master of Science degree in Forestry.
