MULTI-award winning Belfast and Derry-based financial services firm FinTrU is the sole Northern Ireland inclusion in the 2020 Sunday Times Virgin Atlantic Fast Track 100, named as the 42nd fastest growing company in the UK based on growth over the last three years.

Established just seven years ago and already employing more than 700 staff, FinTrU works with a range of global investment bank clients to find solutions to help them meet with their regulations in areas such as risk, compliance, KYC, operations, consultancy and technology.

Its founder and chief executive Darragh McCarthy said: “This is a fantastic achievement and something all our employees should be immensely proud of.

“Each and every member of the team has played a crucial role in FinTrU's success so far and this national recognition is testament to their hard work and dedication during their FinTrU careers.”

The company's chief of staff Katrien Roppe added: “This accolade is not only recognition for this year, but for the past number of years in FinTrU's short history.

“During this time, our employees have excelled professionally and demonstrated ambition with humility, while our company has undergone rapid growth. We recently opened our first US premises in New York, which demonstrates our commitment to expand our global footprint.”

Despite the pandemic, FinTrU has enjoyed a growth rate of 75 per cent, driven by operational excellence.

The company has secured eight new client contracts and two additional Tier 1 investment bank clients during this period.
