Cathaoirleach of Kilkenny County Council, Cllr. Pat Fitzpatrick, welcomed the news of the Aztec Group’s expansion into Ireland which will create 30 new jobs in Kilkenny City.
One of Europe’s leading Fund Administration companies providing services to the Alternatives industry, Aztec is building its team in Ireland with the establishment of a hub in Kilkenny City to serve both new and existing clients eager to do business in the jurisdiction.
In welcoming the news, Cathaoirleach of Kilkenny County Council, Cllr. Pat Fitzpatrick, said “This announcement is great news for Kilkenny. The choice of Kilkenny as a location for the Aztec Group endorses Kilkenny’s credentials as a great location for business. Aztec joins a highly successful and advanced Financial Services cluster here in Kilkenny. I understand that a recruitment campaign is now underway to create a team of approximately 30 here in Kilkenny in the coming months which creates further great job opportunities in Kilkenny. I would like to welcome the Aztec Group to Kilkenny and I wish them every success with this investment.”
The Aztec Group was founded in the Channel Islands in 2001 and currently employs more than 1,800 people globally across offices in Jersey, Guernsey, Luxembourg, the UK and the US.
Following the appointment of Head of Ireland Fund Services, Kevin Hogan, Aztec’s presence in Ireland has now been established with the support of the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
