Global growth sees office space double for financial services company.
AES International employ more head office staff to cope with global growth of the company.
A financial services company is set to double the amount of London office space it leases as the company grows on a global scale.
AES International already have some office space in Fulham but but are planning to expand their presence by doubling their office capacity, taking another floor in the Elysium Gate building where they currently lease space.
The growth comes after a company decision to employ more head office staff to support AES’s global growing operations. The company have said that they hope that this recruitment across all functions will assist the existing advisers, as well as those joining its offices in the United Arab Emirates and Europe.
Managing Director of AES, Sam Instone said: “The pace of growth has exceeded even our rather ambitious expectations. We were rapidly running out of space and needed to increase our capacity, to make space for all the new joiners at head office.”
“Even now, there are several individuals waiting until the move is complete to start their new roles, as we have not had desk space for them.”
Mr Instone added that the company felt that it is important that staff have a comfortable and spacious working environment. It is hoped that the ideal working atmosphere, along with encouragement from experienced staff will ensue a dedicated and long-lasting employee. Mr Instone further added: “Happy, motivated staff are naturally inspired to provide superior support to our advisers and their clients, which is key to delivering value to both advisers and clients.”
The expansion plan comes after AES were ranked 11th in the Sunday Times Fast Track 100 list, the only financial advisory company to make it into the league in 2011. The office space growth is positive news for the capital after recent reports of a decline in office space development and take up in London.
