Growth and Opportunity - Showcasing the Financial Services Cluster in South-West Ireland - IN-PERSON EVENT
Ireland’s South-West region is home to a significant and growing cluster of international financial services (IFS) companies representing multiple sub-sectors of financial services (FS), with particularly strong activity in the areas of asset management, fund administration and fintech. The sector is supported by a robust enabling environment which includes a significant number of leading audit, accountancy and legal firms.
The financial services sector has grown steadily over the last 10 years and is supported by a strong talent pipeline of graduates from the two regional universities, MTU and UCC. Furthermore, the long-established ICT cluster and the growing cyber cluster in the region provide an ideal environment for complementary activities and exchange of expertise in areas that will dominate the future of the FS industry, including AI, cybersecurity and regtech.
This event will showcase some of the many successful financial services companies operating in the South-West and will highlight certain areas where the sector is particularly strong and growing, such as funds and fintech.
