LONDON, 12 November 2018 – Abacus Group, a leading provider of hosted IT solutions and application hosting for alternative investment firms, has been recognized as the winner of “Best Technology-Overall” at the 2018 Alt Credit European Services Awards which took place in London on 31st October.
The Alt Credit European Services Awards recognize best in class for services to alternative credit fund managers, including excellence in customer service and technological innovation. The “Best Technology-Overall” category honours a firm that has provided excellent service as a provider of outsourced IT solutions for the credit sector, demonstrating both customer and revenue growth, product innovation and examples of how service provision has been able to improve the communication, infrastructure, IT and business development of clients.

With outstanding service at its core, the London office has scaled at the same rate, doubling its employee headcount. The team moved into a new, larger space in March of this year in anticipation of such accelerated growth.
“I’m very proud of our Abacus team,” said Tom Cole, Director-Europe at Abacus Group. “Our exciting growth is testament to the team’s passion to deliver great service and innovative yet appropriate technology solutions.”
