Outsourced fund administration services firm Augentius is to establish a Belfast base, which will employ a total of 164 staff by the end of 2014.
The company already has 17 staff in place, and plans to add 30 more by the end of the year.
David Bailey, managing partner and one of the founders of Augentius, says: “We take junior and part-qualified accountants, train them in our sector and support them to obtain their professional qualifications.
“We have people who joined us as trainees and are now fully qualified accountants responsible for their own teams and clients, and I am very proud of this achievement.”
He adds that the firm will be working with Queen’s University and the University of Ulster to source talent in the future.
Enterprise minister Arlene Foster says it is the first time a London-based fund administration firm has invested in Northern Ireland.
