US fintech firm Hanweck has chosen Belfast for its European headquarters, bringing 19 research, development and support jobs to the region.

The company is looking to hire technology and business analysts in Belfast, as it seeks growth in its European operations.

Hanweck delivers high-performance risk analytics services for the financial markets, with founder Jerry Hanweck citing the talented labour pool as one of the reasons it chose Northern Ireland as a hub.

“Belfast provides us with an excellent platform from which to service our customers and capitalise on the evolving market opportunities across Europe”, he said. He also added :

“Our new Belfast office will act as a research, development and support centre. It will augment our ‘follow the sun’ support model, and address the current and future demands of our growing set of customers around the globe. We chose Northern Ireland because of its skilled workforce, strong universities and research centres, high-tech infrastructure and competitive cost structure.”

Last week, hundreds of jobs were announced across different science operations in the Republic of Ireland, but Hanweck’s decision to choose Belfast adds to Northern Ireland’s growing fintech armoury.

Earlier this month, London-based Clarus Financial Technology announced a similar number of jobs in Belfast with the opening of a new research and development centre.
