FinTrU opens new Dublin office to place foothold 'in the EU jurisdiction'

FinTrU's chief financial officer, Steven Murtland.

BELFAST and Derry-based financial services company FinTrU said a new office opened in Dublin is part of its strategy to place a foothold in the EU.

Located next to the International Financial Services Centre) at the city’s North Dock, FinTrU said the new base will be a marketing office to support its business development team and its efforts to develop existing and new clients across North America and EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa).

It comes on the back of significant growth within the company, which has recruited 600 people since the start of 2020.

Chief financial officer, Steven Murtland described the Dublin move as a logical step for FinTrU.

“Our new site will allow us to hire new talent in a different environment, as well as strengthen our proximity to current and prospective investment bank clients in the Irish market," he said.

“It’s a logical step and testament to our client-centric approach that FinTrU has established an operation within the EU which will support our tier one investment bank clients and assist them with the management of their global regulatory requirements.”

Mr Murtland said the company already employ staff who live across the border from its base in Derry.

“So the establishment of FinTrU Ireland provides an opportunity for current and future employees to work for a Republic of Ireland-based company whether they are in Dublin, Donegal or working from home,” he said.

“This new site represents our aim to further our global presence with the opening of an office in the EU jurisdiction.

“Our team here at FinTrU is experienced across multiple disciplines and jurisdictions and our global locations will play a significant role in providing innovative solutions for our growing international client portfolio.”
