Why Ireland for FinTech
Ireland has a deep heritage in growing financial services businesses and an equally strong history in establishing and scaling Irish technology companies focused on foreign markets.
The growth potential of the FinTech industry is a key component of the government’s 2020 strategy, which means there is real focus on the opportunities in FinTech and that will help to ensure that the ecosystem and environment for FinTech companies will continue to be supported and strengthened.
Ireland is fast becoming a global centre for harnessing the FinTech opportunity. Its vibrant, dynamic technology sector, well established global Financial Services centre and proactive eco-system has provided the perfect fit for international FinTech companies seeking to expand and grow. The country’s unique combination of talented people with strong technology and finance backgrounds and proactive government support has enabled a wave of start-up companies to prosper and develop their potential in a highly pro-business environment.
Ireland has over 30,000 people working in financial services and another 100.000 plus in technology. This gives them a critical mass in the two sectors. Coupled with their position as an international financial services centre for 25 years makes Ireland is a compelling location for FinTech.
