Simon Cowie, managing partner at award-winning Aberdeen accountancy firm Infinity Partnership.
Aberdeen-based accountancy firm Infinity Partnership has unveiled a second strategic partnership that significantly broadens its service offering to clients.
Infinity has teamed up with Aston Currency Management to offer treasury management and foreign exchange (FX) services – in what is Aston’s first official collaboration with a Scottish accountancy firm.
It comes in the wake of Infinity’s recent announcement that it has established formal working arrangements with mobile business banking service provider Starling to extend its digital accountancy capabilities for its UK-wide client base.
Greg Houston, Associate Partner at Infinity, said:
“This represents yet another example of Infinity finding the right partner for our clients with international operations. Proactive, transparent and streamlined support is what our clients require for these types of transactions, and we look forward to working with Aston Currency Management.”
Liam Alexander, Partner at Aston CM, said:
“The two firms share a similar ethos: client service is at the core of everything we do. Clients now demand a technology-driven approach to their foreign exchange management in addition to a relationship manager. We’re delighted to partner with Infinity to enhance its already outstanding client offering and to further increase the Aston CM presence in Scotland.”
London-based Aston CM supports clients of all sizes – from SMEs to multinationals – with the delivery of services including multi-currency accounts, spot FX, forward contracts, and FX strategy.
Companies with an international focus are open to the risk of adverse currency movements. By implementing an FX strategy and improving their rates of exchange, companies will reduce currency risk and ultimately improve their balance sheet position.
Infinity, a five-time winner at the British Accountancy Awards, is recognised for its accountancy, research and development tax relief, mergers and acquisitions and corporate finance expertise.
More than 80% of its clients are involved in the energy sector.
The firm was founded in 2011 by managing partner Simon Cowie, a two-time Scottish Dealmaker of the Year winner. Aston CM also has an office in Dubai.
