WEALTH manager St James’s Place and US fintech company SS&C Technologies have announced plans to create 50 jobs in Belfast.

The companies have collaborated for a number of years, working in closely on services in Dublin, Essex and in Scotland.

St James’s Place currently operates from Belfast’s Gasworks site, while SS&C last year completed the acquisition of Capita Life, which is based at Clarendon Dock in the city.

SS&C said the new roles will widen the support it already provides to St James’ss Place by adding administration services alongside their IT operations.

The positions, which include contact centre, senior associate, team leader and operations manager roles, are expected to be filled by April.

SS&C chief executive Bill Stone said: “We are excited to grow our Belfast operations further, and I am confident this addition will allow us to enhance and improve the services we provide to St James’ss Place.”

Keith Willett, who heads St James’s Place’s operations in Northern Ireland, added: “This is great news for our local economy and further endorses Northern Ireland as an excellent environment for businesses looking to grow in the financial services sector.”
