The FinTech Opportunity

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 – A Hotbed of FinTech Innovation

As reported in The Irish Times ‘Focus on Fintech’ feature - a number of factors are combining to encourage FinTech innovation in Ireland. According to Anna Scally – Head of Technology, Media and Telecommunications at KPMG in Ireland, “We have 30,000 people working in financial services and another 100.000 plus in technology. This gives us a critical mass in the two sectors.” This favourable environment is also referenced by Darina Barrett – Head of FS Markets at KPMG who highlights the fact that “Ireland is a compelling location for FinTech given our position as an international financial services centre for 25 years.”
