The jobs are expected to be created due to the company’s plan to invest over £20 million by 2027, which will see the company’s operations in Northern Ireland double in size in that period.

The company, which specialises in regulatory solutions for global investment banks, was founded in 2013 and has since been named one of Europe’s fastest-growing businesses by the Financial Times for two consecutive years.

The company’s founder and chief executive, Darragh McCarthy, said the expansion is “a significant step which will see FinTrU grow to over 1,500 employees in Northern Ireland and significantly increase our competitiveness, catapulting us into a new era of business growth.”

The company’s executive director, Greg McCann, spoke of the promising emerging talent in the region: “FinTrU is an indigenous company to Northern Ireland and our people strategy is to attract, develop and retain the best talent in the marketplace. There are a lot of high-quality graduates coming from the local universities and colleges who have supported us to win new customers and grow our sales globally. We have also welcomed a large number of experienced professionals, who have returned to the North West to pursue the high-quality careers we can provide.”
