About
FinTrU

Founded in December 2013, FinTrU is a multi-award winning financial services company that is committed to giving local talent the opportunity to work on the global stage with the largest international investment banks. FinTrU provides its clients with high quality, cost-effective, near-shore resourcing solutions.
FinTrU’s products are: Legal, Risk, Compliance, KYC, Operations and Consultancy. Its clients are all Tier 1 Investment Banks based in London, New York, Tokyo, Frankfurt and Paris.
FinTrU currently employs 270 staff at its two Belfast city centre offices, located in The Gasworks and Pakenham Street and in Carlisle House in Derry/Londonderry.
Whilst FinTrU is managed as a profit-driven organisation, Darragh McCarthy, Founder & CEO, also considers FinTrU as having a social purpose to create high-quality professional employment on the island of Ireland. Prior to FinTrU’s establishment, Darragh thoroughly researched various locations across Ireland to determine which location FinTrU should establish in.
The availability of a high number of talented graduates in the job market, coupled with support from Invest NI and cost-effectiveness of Northern Ireland made it the obvious choice as a base for FinTrU. These factors have enabled FinTrU to offer a unique and highly competitive alternative to the more traditional off-shore outsourcing solutions often favoured by Investment Banks.
