Augentius Compliance has appointed Andrew Shrimpton as its Chairman. Andrew will spearhead expansion of the business, following yet another year of strong growth for Augentius’ leading Regulatory Compliance Business.
As the investment management industry strives to navigate its ever-tightening regulatory frameworks – while the regulators are more proactive than ever – demand is intensifying for workable solutions which allow fund managers to focus on their core investment strategy, while being confident in ensuring compliance.
Andrew Shrimpton, Chairman, Augentius Compliance Ltd commented: “In an ever-expanding universe of complex rules and directives, including the imminent GDPR regulation, it is a huge challenge for managers to keep abreast of the constant change. They need assistance from experts who truly understand their business, creating significant opportunity for Augentius to ease the pressure for managers with its tailored outsourced solutions and premium client service. I am thrilled to be joining the business at a pivotal time in its growth.”
Ian Kelly, CEO, Augentius Group Ltd added: “We are delighted to have Andrew on board. With over 30 years of experience in the investment management industry as not only a Compliance Director, but as a Regulator, his deep industry knowledge and skillset make him perfectly placed to Chair our compliance business as we build on our year on year success. We are broadening our relationships with clients because we understand how managers work and what is important to them. We give managers the ability to focus on their core job, safe in the knowledge that our consistently high-quality solutions ensure complete compliance.
