Kathryn Purves

CEO, Aztec Group


I was appointed as CEO of Fund and Corporate Services provider Aztec Group in April 2023, having previously served as Chair of the board and as a Non-executive Director. I also serve as a Non-executive Director of Nucleus Financial, which is backed by HPS Investment Partners and Epiris.

I was previously Chair of financial services provider Redington, which is backed by Phoenix Equity Partners, and wealth management firm Saunderson House, which was backed by Epiris before a trade sale to Rathbones Group in 2021. I’ve also served as a Non-executive Director of FTSE 100-listed Intermediate Capital Group plc. Between 2018 and 2020, I was CEO of IFG Group plc, before selling the business to Epiris.

I started my career in global banking and private equity, including four years with Phoenix Equity Partners, before joining Partnership Life Assurance, where I was a key member of the leadership team through a highly successfully ownership period with Cinven and the listing of the business in 2013 at a £1.5bn valuation.

I hope to support PepTalks members in the community by sharing my perspectives as an investor, Chair and CEO, drawing on experiences of working with both mid-market and large-cap PE houses.
