Charles River, an enterprise-wide, front- and middle-office investment management solution provider, has opened a new Managed Services office in Dublin to meet growing global demand for SaaS-based operations. The Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation, through IDA Ireland, worked closely with Charles River to secure this expansion.
“We’re pleased that Charles River has selected Dublin for its new Managed Services Center as they continue to expand internationally. As financial markets become increasingly complex requiring talented resources, Ireland is well placed to benefit from this opportunity in the coming years.”
Barry O’Leary, CEO, IDA
“Financial services is a key sector we have targeted as part of our Action Plan for Jobs, and we have focused particularly on taking advantage of our strengths in the technology sector to attract financial services technology providers. Charles River is a leading provider of tech solutions for the financial services industry, and today’s announcement that it is establishing a new high-end operation in Dublin is a great boost. I commend IDA on this win and wish Charles River every success with their new operation.”
Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Richard Bruton TD
