Bringing good news prior to Christmas, financial services company Fidelity Investments has revealed it is opening of a new Dublin office that will bring 200 jobs, with plans for more in the future.
Earlier this year, Fidelity Investments began to fill one of its latest offices in Citywest, Dublin, and now plans on using the new office to fill a diverse set of roles the company said will allow it to continue to enable support for its global operations.
The American company originally set up operations in Ireland in 1996, with encouragement from IDA Ireland, and Fidelity Investments now has offices in Dublin and Galway. Since 2012, the firm’s presence has grown significantly, with confirmation of further plans to grow its Irish operations to more than 900 employees in the future.
Most of Fidelity Investments Ireland’s employees are part of the company’s technology or business operations division, and are involved in much of the firm’s business operations, including asset management, retail and institutional brokerage, workplace investing, and corporate services.
Martin Shanahan, CEO of IDA Ireland, said Fidelity Investments’ capacity to run everything from research and development to international financial services from its Irish operation is a shining example of the breadth and quality of the talent Ireland has available to multinationals.
“The financial services industry remains one of the strongest performing investment sectors for IDA Ireland,” Shanahan said.
