Chatsworth opens Belfast office

Chatsworth belfast office

Chatsworth has opened a new office in Belfast to tap into the city’s thriving fintech scene and deep pool of talent.

Having successfully rolled out flexible, hybrid working in the past two years, Chatsworth’s Belfast team will work closely with the team in London to service the firm’s clients across the globe. 

London will always play a central role in the global fintech revolution, but in recent times we have seen investment in creating technology hubs in other cities around the UK and this is translating into the creation of thriving, engaged communities and exciting companies. 

Belfast, which is increasingly being seen as a city bursting with entrepreneurship and innovation, has been one of the main beneficiaries of this trend. At the end of 2021, it was ranked in the top tech cities in the UK in a new report by the UK’s Digital Economy Council. 

Over the past couple of years, a new breed of fintech businesses has taken the local and international business scene by storm, putting the city on the map.  

Investment that is pouring into Belfast. Citi plans to hire 400 people, bringing its headcount to 3,600+ and FinTru aims to double its headcount to 1,600. Big Four accounting firms PwC, Deloitte and KPMG, also plan to create 2,200 jobs in Belfast. 

Over the past year, we have worked with a number of leading Belfast-based fintechs including Datactics, specialists in user-friendly data quality and matching software which now has a 50+ strong team and fscom, a firm of compliance experts which currently works with over 18% of the UK payments sector.
