SGG Group voted best Fund Administrator in Africa for Private Equity for 2018

SGG Group, the 4th largest independent investor services firm in the world, is pleased to announce that it has been voted as the Best Fund Administrator in Africa for Private Equity for 2018 by the Africa Global Funds (AGF) Africa Service Providers Awards.

The AGF Africa Service Providers Awards are dedicated to promoting excellence in the African fund industry. These awards are designed to recognise business excellence, integrity, and leadership of fund service providers covering Africa. The judging panel consists of experienced professionals who have a good knowledge of the fund industry in Africa.

Commenting on the award, Justin Partington, Group Funds Solutions Leader, said: “This award is a great endorsement for SGG’s focused African strategy. We have built our onshore presence in South Africa via the acquisition of Viacert which is a boutique provider of financial statements preparation services to alternative asset fund managers in South Africa and globally.

On behalf of our dedicated and expert colleagues, I am delighted to accept this award that recognises our reputation for providing exceptional service delivery to leading fund managers in Africa or investing in Africa,” added Justin Partington.

SGG Group also announced that it has recently appointed Charles Buchanan as Managing Director for South Africa Fund Services. Charles has over 20 years’ experience in the financial services industry in South Africa and the United Kingdom, having worked for Barclays Capital, Rand Merchant Bank, Catalyst Fund Managers and, most recently, Maitland. He will be in charge of implementing SGG’s onshore South African fund services strategy under the leadership of Edan Latzelsberger, Commercial Director of SGG Mauritius. Charles will be based in Cape Town, expanding the firm’s South African footprint beyond its existing operations in Johannesburg.
