Aurelius Group is moving to a new London office in the heart of Soho. In addition, the firm has appointed two new team members: Philip Stoner as an Investment Associate, and Daven Chopra as an Operations Manager.
The new office, located in Glasshouse Street, is a contemporary space with a grade II listed Regent Street façade. Set across two floors, the larger office will accommodate Aurelius’ entire London-based team bringing together Aurelius Equity and Aurelius Finance under one roof, and paving the way for further growth in the UK market.
Stoner began his career at PwC, where he most recently held the position of Manager in the company’s Transaction Services team, specialising in buy-side, sell-side and refinancing services for private equity and corporate clients. He graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Economics from the University of Exeter.
Chopra joins from Deloitte, where he worked as a Strategy & Operations Consultant in both the UK and US focusing on business strategy as well as the implementation of large scale transformation programmes. He has a Bachelor of Science in Economics from the University of Nottingham.
Tristan Nagler, Managing Director of Aurelius in the UK, says: “We are seeing plenty of investment opportunities in the UK market, as shown by our healthy deal pipeline. Our move to a larger office will provide opportunity for growth going forward and is a demonstration of our long-term commitment to the market.”
“This sentiment is bolstered by the announcement of two new hires to the UK team, which brings our total headcount to more than twenty. Philip brings a wealth of high-quality experience to our deal team and will support us in our goal of continuing to grow our investment portfolio in the UK. In addition, Daven’s appointment demonstrates our ongoing commitment to supporting our investee companies with dedicated in-house operational expertise.”
