Vox Financial Partners is investing over £1.5million and more than doubling its workforce as part of ambitious strategic business plans.
Founded in 2016, the Belfast based Fintech consultancy works with top-tier bank and broker-dealer clients in the US and Europe. It offers high quality regulatory expertise to enable its clients to plan, resource and deliver major regulatory change projects.
Invest Northern Ireland has provided the company with advice and guidance on its growth plans, and has offered £175,000 to support the creation of 25 jobs and the company’s market development activities.
Danielle Gorman, Director of Operations, Vox Financial Partners, said: “Invest NI’s support has provided us with the opportunity to grow our team, and in turn, grow our business further in the global financial services sector. During the current situation, we have been fortunate that our sales have increased as we continue to offer new and existing clients the support they need at this time. By increasing headcount, we now have the opportunity to diversify our product offering, using our expertise in the financial services sector to continue securing new business.
“Moving forward, we will be continuing to invest in new technology areas following the creation of our Opal software platform, developed with Invest NI’s R&D support. We are looking forward to accelerating the growth and development of our business by significantly expanding our team over the next two years.”
Speaking to Q Radio News, CEO of Vox Financial Partners, Brendan Gorman explained the importance of the investment for Northern Ireland.
Recruitment has commenced, with job opportunities including Operational Lead, Team Leader, Consultant, and Analyst roles. All employees are currently working remotely from home, and new employees recruited during the current situation will be on-boarded remotely and work from home.
Kevin Holland, CEO, Invest NI, congratulated the company on its expansion: “It is great to see local companies continuing to drive business growth during these challenging times. Following a successful R&D program to create its Opal platform with our support, this new investment reflects Vox Financial’s commitment to its Belfast office and the dynamic future of its business in Northern Ireland.
“The new jobs will not only more than double its workforce to help the company achieve its export targets and grow its customer base, but they will also generate over £770,000 additional annual salaries to our local economy.”
