Northern Ireland is rapidly becoming a magnet for the financial services sector. Its capital, Belfast, is already recognised as one of the world’s top locations for mobile fintech investment and specialist research teams in its world class universities are leading the way in fields such as cyber security and analytics.
The region’s compelling combination of deep technical expertise, a robust talent pipeline and a competitive cost base has attracted an impressive list of international companies, and Northern Ireland’s entrepreneurial ecosystem supports innovative start-ups delivering solutions globally. Substantial clusters of excellence are flourishing in capital markets, asset management and risk, regulation and compliance, and regulatory technology.
Global companies such as Citi, First Derivatives and PWC along with an impressive cadre of international law firms, including Allen & Overy and Axiom, are delivering innovative compliance and risk products to global financial institutions from Belfast.
Collaboration is actively promoted in Northern Ireland and its financial services sector benefits from a strong partnership between industry, academia and government, which drives proactive skills development and innovation.
Invest Northern Ireland, the region’s economic development agency, works in partnership with investors to offer advice and financial assistance to support business establishment, growth, capability development and international competitiveness.
