Formed in 2004, AES exists to introduce positive change into cross-border, international and offshore financial services.
Founded by former British military officers the organisation strives to be the polar opposite of its predecessors. This has meant clearly appraising the practices of the past, previously accepted client outcomes and established industry norms and pioneering a new way of business based upon stronger core cultural values, complete transparency, high quality people, teamwork, clear leadership and a client-first approach. This determination to lead the old financial industry into the profession of the future drives all of our thinking and made us both the 2011 and 2012 Sunday Times Virgin Fast Track fastest-growing UK financial services firm.
Our expertise is in dealing with international, cross-border, in-patriate, expatriate, non-domiciled and offshore requirements along with the additional tax, legal, currency, regulatory and advisory complexities of this market. However, we also have a deep understanding of specialist territories and sectors from within this already niche market. This spans such practices as healthcare, maritime, oil and gas, high risk areas, international employee benefits, international pensions and commercial insurance.
The defining characteristics of AES are knowledge, integrity, passion and differentiation. Our belief is that by adopting the very highest standards regardless of jurisdiction, embracing new ideas, applying leading technology and operating in a uniquely team-based manner – we can deliver the very best financial services to all our clients. The business is risk averse, well-capitalised and focused on what we understand and can do well.
Today, AES is a multi-award winning and market leading organisation. In excess of one hundred and fifty people serve many thousands of clients and companies around the globe. These associates all remain as committed to our core values and are as passionate about positive change and our clients as the day we began.
