The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) is due to expand the business operations of its NYSE Technologies division in Northern Ireland. The move will see the creation of up to 400 new jobs over the coming years.
Invest Northern Ireland will provide up to £9.6 million to support the move of NYSE Technologies business operations into a new state-of-the-art development facility in Belfast by 2010.
The major investment by NYSE in Northern Ireland comes after it bought a Belfast software firm last year.
“No one should doubt the scale and significance of this expansion which is a major endorsement of our local talent, knowledge and infrastructure,” said NI Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness.
“It will also send a clear message to other potential investors when such a high-profile institution decides to invest here,” he added.
“Northern Ireland will become increasingly important to our global growth strategy and complement our technology centres in Paris and London,” commented NYSE Euronext CEO Duncan Niederauer.
“Together, these centres of excellence will enable us to effectively address the growing technology and trading needs of our customers and our company.”
