Just Good Friends

Good news for Aberdeen Asset Management, the big investment company. They've managed to find a tenant for their multi-million pound refurbished AB1 office complex in Aberdeen city centre.

The Crown Office and Procurator Fiscal Service (COPFS) have taken 10,500 sq ft of first floor space.

I reckon this is a good move for Aberdeen Asset Management.

Especially after Aberdeen Asset Management were the company who lost a lengthy court battle with HMRC over a £31m scheme which paid bonuses to seven of their senior employees, including founder and CEO Martin Gilbert.

There's no suggestion of course that Aberdeen Asset Management have rented these premises to the Crown office for any other reason than they have some office space for rent and the Crown office need some office space in that area.

However, it has to be said, if you ever find yourself in a court of law again in the future, fighting against the establishment (who we all know are incestuously connected), it surely can't hurt to be the Crown office's landlord...
